HARLEM & THE FUTURE:

 Preserving Culture & Sustaining Historic Character in a Changing Environment

 

Join us at a day-long conference focused on West Harlem’s resilience in the face of neighborhood change.

Today, what do you think of when you think of Harlem? Will the future Harlem still resonate its past? That question will be explored while reflecting on Harlem’s unique cultural heritage, built environment, and social fabric. Come to learn and connect with the community that seeks to preserve its cultural and architectural legacies. The day will entail keynote speakers, panel discussions, walking tours, and a film screening titled Gentrification.
