Folks – Next Friday night at 6:30 I’ll be at CTUL leading a conversation about the power and promise of a city that supports, rather than drowns out, the narrative of a multi-subject urban experience.
How would MPLS be a different place to live were we discuss (and live!) our lives together as a vast, at times in and at times out of step, series of histories and experiences, realities and dreams? Rather than a narrative of “MPLS is this…” what is to be gained from, “MPLS is this, and this, and this, and this…”? A “Yes, and…” urbanism!
I’m so excited to walk up the street from home to one of the most vibrant spots in the neighborhood to discuss this with friends I have these types of conversations with often, like Jeremiah Bey Ellison, Jennifer Newsom Carruthers, & Sarah Jane Keaveny, and folks I am recently getting to know, like Tina Sigel, & Ginger Jentzen. – Sam
This is, of course, all part of the City as Commons Group, and Beyond Repair’s, gathering next week, What Can a City Be? Here more info on that…
