20170517_VanAlen_eventpage

Once an artery of commerce and industry, the Gowanus neighborhood has become emblematic of change and the forces impacting the Brooklyn experience: grassroots arts, environmental remediation, and real estate speculation. Join us for a fast-paced discussion with experts playing pivotal roles in these arenas, including Abby Subak, Jared della Valle, Owen Foote, David Briggs, and Philip Silva, and look at how shifting flows of creativity and capital are redefining this historic artery. Moderated by Joseph Alexiou, author of Gowanus: Brooklyn’s Curious Canal.

Presented in partnership with Van Alen Institute.
