MAS Road to Resilience Conference, Sat. Jan. 12

Charting the Road to Resilience - From the Ground Up
A Municipal Arts Society Conference
The New School
Saturday, January 12, 9 AM - 4 PM

(The conference is preceded by a series of site visits within communities affected by Hurricane Sandy on Friday, January 11.  See for details.)

MAS is convening a day of lively discussion and learning, with plenary sessions and more than twenty hands-on workshops designed to foster an exchange of ideas and enable grassroots networking with a diverse group of stakeholders from across the region.  Included in the day will be plenaries on:

  • The Real Picture, a data briefing of Sandy’s effects led by the NYU Furman Center
  • What’s at Stake and Who is Doing What: The Landscape of Decision Making
  • Community Responses
  • Addressing the Hard Questions

Breakout sessions will focus on a wide range of topics such as environment and infrastructure design, economics, small business recovery & entrepreneurship, unlocking the potential of community capacity, building cultural resilience and much more. Joining us will be representatives from affected neighborhoods across New York City; from the public, private and community sectors; from the urban planning, design and architecture communities; from academia; from community development and cultural sectors; as well as several people engaged in community-based responses to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
