Space, Race, and Place: Transforming Redevelopment, Part 2

Nov 21, 2017



Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


7:00 p.m.


Hosted in collaboration with Hogan’s Alley Society, Space, Race, and Place: Transforming Redevelopment was a conversation series that responded to the planned removal of the Georgia and Dunsmir Viaducts—infrastructure that displaced residents of Hogan’s Alley, Vancouver’s historic Black community, in the 1960s.

The final event of this two-part program featured presentations from Anthonia Ogundele, Vanessa Richards, Stephanie Allen, and Matt Hern that reflected on land trusts, the history of community land stewardship, and real estate development trends in Vancouver. The talk followed a “mixtape” format, in which panelists were introduced by a song of their choice before entering into their presentations. The two-hour long event concluded with a question and answer period.

Video documentation of this event is available upon request.
