Art, Change and Community: A Conversation

recorded on October 5, 2013. Part of The Imagining America National Conference in Syracuse, NY.

Nojaim Grocery Store, 321 Gifford St, Syracuse, NY

In the past several years the Westside has seen a wide range of initiatives implemented in the neighborhood, (economic initiatives, zoning initiatives, art initiatives) most of them centering on ideas about community in general, and the Westside community in particular.

This discussion invited local residents to present their thoughts about community and community-based initiatives, both positive and negative.

This public conversation about art and community included members of the Westside community, Marion Wilson, (601 Tully), Amy Lipton, (EcoArtSpace), Joanna Spitzner (Syracuse University) and other guests. The conversation was broadcast to the local neighborhood on 93.5 FM.
