Talk |
Despite the uncertain future of the South Street Seaport, one thing is sure: it's a place of rooted culture, rich histories and meaning to New York. Its federal-style brick buildings and historical boats, rich culinary and waterfront culture, and the long presence of the arts community - these are few of the assets worth celebrating if we want to imagine the future of the Seaport together. How can we use design to make these cultural gems more visible and create a more vibrant place in Lower Manhattan? Designers can't do it alone - they need the wisdom of the diverse community of residents, business owners, day workers and visitors, designers and more to join in what promises to be an open, inspiring dialogue to imagine the next Seaport. The talk (2:00-3:00PM): Susan Silberberg, the critically acclaimed expert on placemaking and founding director of CivicMoxie, author of "Place in the Making," will discuss the interactions between placemaking, arts and culture, inclusive participation, and the expanding ways communities are collaborating to make great public spaces. The charrette (3:30-5:00PM): Come participate in an interactive, fun and imaginative workshop to help the Seaport community collectively identify the hidden cultural gems and untold stories in the Seaport and raise their visibility for all to see and enjoy. Introduction by Seaport's Fresh Salt Sara Willams and Design/Relief's Catch*Release team will precede the workshop.

Departing from gender codes culturally imprinted in the female and male bodies, this interactive performance seeks to explore a series of questions about what is normal, how normal comes to exist, what is considered beyond normality, and who is excluded or oppressed by normative notions. Understanding that power trickles down to our every-day behavior, the work aesthetically provokes the reflection on how do we behave in face of this production of power, in which we are all implicated.
