Speculative Machine II: Specters of Climate, Community, and Corruption
Thursday, Feb 28, 2019 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM - English
This panel discussion explores how communities in Miami are affected by the interrelated issues of climate, gentrification, and corruption. It pays particular attention to trends within the cultural sector that either combat, or contribute to, the crisis, and it considers both the exposed and hidden manifestations of corruption upon the city's urban landscape. Participants include George Yudice (Professor of critical theory and cultural studies at the University of Miami, and Director of the Miami Observatory on Communication and Creative Industries), Timothy A. Barber (Executive Director of the Black Archives in Overtown, and former member of the City of Miami Historic and Environmental Preservation Board), and Mariana Boldu (Landscape Architect and Director of Resilience Design at Curtis + Rogers Design Studio, and Board Member of the City of Miami Sea Level Rise Committee).
$12 adults; $8 seniors and military; $5 students (13-17) and college students (with valid ID); free for MOAD members, MDC students, faculty, and staff, and children 12 and under.
