The Urban Uprising Conference is a two day event exploring how architects and designers can shape a city to be more just, more resilient, and better serve the majority of its population. From the revolutions sometimes called the “Arab Spring” to the vigorous demonstrations of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, and more, the conference will address the lessons from around the world on how do we understand social change in this current moment. Speakers include: David Harvey (Director, Center for Place, Culture, and Politics, CUNY Graduate Center), Frances Fox Piven (Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Sociology, CUNY), Rob Robinson (Campaign to Restore National Housing, Take Back the Land, US Human Rights Network), Peter Marcuse (Professor Emeritus of Urban Planning, Columbia University), Marian Kramer (Co-chair, National Welfare Rights Union, founding member, League of Revolutionary Black Workers).
