Neighbourhood development or gentrification? This public event explores the debate surrounding rapidly changing Saskatoon neighbourhoods such as Riversdale and Pleasant Hill. Rick Lowe, along with local artists, affordable housing advocates and neighbourhood residents will lead the conversation.
Rick Lowe is the Houston-based founder of Project Row Houses, an award-winning arts-based community revitalization project in Texas. He is also the recipient of a MacArthur Genius Grant and was appointed to the National Council on the Arts in 2013 by U.S. President Barack Obama.
Lowe will also lead a public talk at the Roxy Theatre at 7 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 7, titled Exploring Social and Community-Engaged Art.
These events are organized by the University of Saskatchewan Urban Change Working Group.
