The New Urban Crisis

July 31, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On Tuesday, July 31st  Join Van Alen Institute as we delve into Richard Florida’s The New Urban Crisis.

In 2002, Richard Florida published The Rise of the Creative Class, urging city-makers to improve their neighborhoods by investing in amenities that would attract young “makers.”Creative Class quickly became a handbook for mayors, developers, and planners, giving rise to walkability ratings, cultural attractions, and increased bike lanes. Yet over the same years, rents and urban inequality have skyrocketed. Join us as we discuss Florida’s revision to his theory, asking what went wrong, and what we can learn to make cities better in the future.

Open to new and returning participants.
Food and beverages will be provided
