Contested City in California

In April 2019, Contested City moved west to California with an extraordinary series of talks and community conversations in Davis and Sacramento, hosted by Imagining America, and a series of events in Berkeley, culminating in Contested City: Art, Activism, and Urban Renewal,hosted by UC Berkeley’s Global Urban Humanities initiative.

Talking about development, urban renewal, disinvestment and shared histories between the east and west coasts in Sacramento, hosted by Imagining America.

One of the greatest joys of travel is reconnecting with friends and soulmate colleagues. How lucky was Gabrielle to spend an evening in Berkeley with the incomparable Susan Schwarztenberg (in front of the camera) and the extraordinary Janet Delaney (as always, behind it.)
