City/Cité: Translating Cities and Cultures

Join Berkeley Arts + Design on Monday, March 29 at 6:30 PM PDT for a panel discussion on the role of artists, urban planners, scholars, and elected officials in developing community-oriented cities across the US—Oakland, Chicago, Detroit—and Saint-Denis.

Cultural leaders Roberto Bedoya, Connie Spreen, Anya Sirota, and Juliette Donadieu will come together on screen to share their perspectives and experiences on projects related to the themes of placemaking, translation, and storytelling. Moderated by Shannon Jackson, this conversation will share insight into how cities can better create community and arts-minded spaces.
