In short: focused conversational pot luck!
Our inaugural Uncovered Discussion Series serial “Art Shaped Community” looks at relationships between growing communities within Chicago, Gary, and Detroit. We will investigate what challenges face each of these cities and how particular neighborhoods have responded and thrived. Within this conversation will be central themes of gentrification, dealing with abandoned properties, and questions of what makes healthy communities.
How do satellite neighborhoods bring vitality to the greater city? Are they anomalies or have a greater influence? How important is it for these neighborhoods to be viewed independently by their own right? What are tools of community building that have been working successfully?
It is the hope that through these discussions participants can uncover ways to improve their own communities.
Bring a dish and drink to share and come ready with questions or thoughts on what makes a community.
The evening will be hosted by Cullen Daniel, President of Miller Beach Historical Society; Corey William Hagelberg, Co-founder Calumet Artist Residency; and
Jennifer White, Founder of Rehabitate
