Workable Cities: Bridging the Gaps // Lessons from the Field

Learn how urbanists are making the New York region more workable.

3×3 Design, in collaboration with Mass Urban and Open Communities, is excited to launch Lessons from the Field at the New School on Thursday July, 23 from 7 to 9pm.

Workable Cities: Bridging the Gaps is a three-part workshop series that explores the gaps and opportunities in our region’s urban development process to create a platform for creative transformation.

Lessons from the Field, the second working session, will invite a panel of urban practitioners to share their experiences on advancing positive change and reflect on how these connect with systemic urban issues. These ‘lessons’ will be the starting point for participants to share their ideas and best practices to create a shared toolkit that helps overcome common challenges. The goal is to identify ways for participants to improve urban practice and build relationships between other practitioners, artists, and academics working in the field.

This series is part of Workable Cities’ larger regional planning research and engagement initiative launched by Mass Urban.

Workshop Panelists:

Dave Seliger: Co-Founder of Civic Service

Dave will talk about Civic Service, a program from the Parsons DESIS Lab that works with civil servants using service design to create better public services.

Daniel Latorre: Founder of The Wise City

Daniel will discuss his ongoing work using community-centered design and service design for a civic tech impact project connected to an upcoming feature length documentary about disaster and social resilience.
