PAS: The Gentrification Fishbowl

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM Music City Center, 101C Special Programming
Open to All Attendees

The Urban Land Institute Advisory Services Team welcomes you to a participate in a facilitated conversation on gentrification and displacement. Unlike the typical frontal panel experience, this session offers the chance for attendees to select how actively they wish to participate in or listen to a conversation on the nuances of gentrification and displacement. We will explore this topic through a uniquely designed exercise involving two circles of chairs: an inner circle, where participants will be prompted to converse based on a select group of questions, and an outer circle, where participants are invited to actively listen to the conversation within. Those in the outer circle are welcome to 0tap into0 the inner circle when they wish to participate in the conversation, allowing for fluidity of ideas and participation to emerge throughout the session. The intent of the Gentrification Fishbowl is to provide a space for ULI members to discuss, probe, and unpack issues surrounding gentrification and displacement in a meaningful way.
