Public Conversation w/ Rick Lowe

Great Places is pleased to host Rick Lowe, the internationally acclaimed Houston-based artist who in 1993 founded Project Row Houses.
Join Rick Lowe again at the Friendship Inn (619 20 Street W) on Friday September 9 between 6:00-9:00 PM for a public conversation about Changing Saskatoon Neighbourhoods. Free Admission. Tea and bannock will be served.

Neighbourhood development or gentrification? Rejuvenation or white-washing? What’s going on in Riversdale, Pleasant Hill, and nearby neighbourhoods? How do current residents imagine the future of their communities? Come hear Project Row Houses founder Rick Lowe and local artists, affordable housing advocates, activists, and neighbourhood residents discuss the role of art and creativity in education, social safety nets, housing, and culture. Join the conversation with your ideas and questions!
