City/Cité: Translating Cities and Cultures

In the midst of the COVID-19 public health crisis and the Black Lives Matter movement, social issues have been exacerbated. Already engaged in the transformation of their cities, a group of artists, urban planners, entrepreneurs, elected officials, and researchers set out to examine the process of city-making in France and California. The Oakland/Saint-Denis project was born under a common conviction: our cities must be built collectively and with the arts and humanities at the center.

Join us for an exploration of three US cities—Chicago, Detroit, and Oakland—as they develop innovative models for city-building.
