Artists are often deemed harbingers of gentrification or pawns in neighborhood rebranding. Yet they can also take charge of their communities’ future by bringing attention to economic pressures and pushing for protections for long-term residents. Join us for a conversation on artists taking action with Arts East NY Founder and Executive Director Catherine Green, author of How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood Peter Moskowitz, and artist William Powhida.
