RSVP (max. capacity 15 guests)
We recognize that in our privatized economy, housing has become an asset not only for developers but for all lease holders with extra space to help offset the dramatic recent increases in rent city-wide. We would like to offer a space for discussing how ownership and property decisions might involve more shared decision making beyond individual owners and their representatives to include more stakeholders from communities on the receiving end of these actions. Is displacement inevitable, or is it possible to work together to achieve sustainable and stable communities? We aim to create a space for discussing how that might happen. Special guests include: Asher Edelman from Artemus, an art leasing company, and Edelman Arts, Stefani Pace from Space in the City, Arun Sundararajan, professor at NYU and authour of "The Sharing Economy: The End of Employment and the Rise of Crowd-Based Capitalism" (2016) and a New York resident who values his internet anonymity with decades of experience working in banking, finance, and real estate development.
