Planning Jam Session: Shoshanah Goldberg-Miller, PhD

4th Floor CRP Studio / Knowlton Hall
March 29, 2017 - 9:45am

Join City and Regional Planning faculty, students and guests at the next Planning Jam Session, in the 4th Floor CRP Studio, 9:45-11:00 a.m., Wednesday, March 29. Coffee, pastries and acoustic guitar music by the Planning Jammers will be provided. 

Shoshanah Goldberg-Miller, PhD, will lead a lively discussion about making cities creative, with a focus on revealing the shadow side of the highly popular trend. Who is left out of this conversation? We will examine the winners and losers in creative placemaking, and present innovative and inclusive options for community building towards a more sustainable city of culture. Goldberg-Miller is Assistant Professor of Arts Administration, Education and Policy, and Affiliate Assistant Professor of City and Regional Planning in the Knowlton School, and serves as Academic Advisor to the City of Toronto’s Department of Economic Development and Culture. Her book, Planning for a City of Culture: Creative Urbanism in Toronto and New York (Routledge, Taylor & Francis, March 2017) brings a new, fresh perspective to the study of creative cities by using policy theory as an underlying construct to understand the role of arts and culture in the transformation of Toronto and the revitalization of New York during the decade of the 2000s. 

The Jam Session will consist of a 20 minute discussion led by Goldberg-Miller followed by a 30 minute Q & A with guest panelists. The panel for this Planning Jam Session will include:
