We've lined up a lot of great community members to join our conversation this Wednesday night at Real Art Ways. The main panelist will be David Panagore from the City of Hartford - talking in part about the "One City One Plan" initiative, and also about the city might be able to tap into the creative class that exists in Hartford. As we've mentioned before, at Where We Live we like to benchmark. Not to say that cities like Worcester, Northampton or Providence are the same as Hartford - and that works for them will work for us. But inspiration is not a bad thing. Stephanie Fortunato will join us from Providence, to talk about the "Creative Providence" campaign, and we'll hear excerpts from an interview with Charles Landry, an international expert on city transformation, author of "The Art of City Making" and "The Creative City". (Hear the whole interview at our website).
Hope to see you on Wednesday! Leave your comments and questions...
In October, Where We Live and Real Art Ways asked for your thoughts, ideas, questions, and stories about Hartford’s past, present, and future. We heard what you had to say – and now we’re continuing that conversation with a series of interactive live recordings.
This space serves as your way to help us shape that conversation.
