CITY LIVE: 10 People. 3 Minutes. Redux!

December 9

6:30PM @ NEW HAZLETT THEATER > CLICK TO RSVP

Back by popular demand! 10 more opinionated souls give us their most brilliant ideas for change. From the reasonable to the audacious.

Give us 30 minutes and we’ll change the way you see the city. Each person gets three minutes to offer up an idea without any restrictions. Forget feasibility, funding or anything as ridiculous as consensus-building. We asked for thought-provoking’ and outside the box’ concepts that examine change and how we approach it.

We have Susan Everingham, director of the RAND office in Pittsburgh; Scott Faber, a behavioral pediatrician at the Children’s Institute; Raymar Hampshire of sponsorchange (.org); Sean Jones of the Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra; Alexi Morrissey, a poet; Priya Narasimhan from Carnegie Mellon’s Mobility Center; Hilary Robinson, dean at the College of Fine Arts at Carnegie Mellon; Jon Rubin , artist, and the man behind Waffle Shop; and Janera Solomon of Regent Theater ED.

And back to moderate is Chris Potter, renowned editor of the City Paper.

Audience participation is a must. Show your love!

The New Artist takes place at the Robotics Institute and is the result of the collaborative efforts of Ben Brown, Geoff Gordon, Sue Ann Hong, Marek Michalowski, Paul Scerri, Axel Straschnoy, Iheanyi Umez-Eronini and Garth Zeglin. It is produced by Piritta Puhto.
