About the event

Envisioning creative solutions for affordable urban dwelling systems requires innovative processes that bring together residents, designers, social service providers. How do social service projects conceived in this way carve a new relationship with the humanities that may redefine the category of the humanities itself? Join Nancy Biberman (founder, WHEDco) and Susan Saegert (Environmental Psychology, The Graduate Center) for a conversation about Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation, a model non-profit organization focused on affordable housing.

This lecture is part of the "Common Goods: Exploring Innovative Transitions Series" presented in connection with the Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency exhibition on view in the James Gallery from March 14 to June 2, 2012.
