Change & The City - May 2016

On May 12, 2016, we hosted our first urban exchange between Detroit & New Orleans at the Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Center on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in New Orleans.

The evening began with a screening of Change & The City, a video series featuring perspectives from Detroit, Philadelphia & New Orleans. The post-screening dialogue included special guest speakers: Lauren Hood, Live6 Alliance (Detroit); Chad Rochkind, Human Scale Studio (Detroit); Suzanne Mobley, Tulane City Center (NOLA); Jocelyne Ninneman, DETxNOLA, Andre Perry, education advocate (NOLA); Rashida Govan, Project Butterfly (NOLA), Westley Bayas III, Magnolia Strategies (NOLA), moderated by Claire Nelson, Urban Consulate. The conversation continued at Casa Borrega, with neighborhood site visits led by Linda Pompa of OC Haley Merchants Association and Joel Ross of Concordia.

Many thanks to all who participated. Follow us on social media for future exchanges.
