Reimagining Cities: Building Resiliency

October 25, 2013

LBJ School of Public Affairs, SRH, Bass Lecture Hall

9:00am – 3:00pm

The Center for Politics and Governance at the LBJ School of Public Affairs (CPG) is tapping into the entrepreneurial spirit of Austin by launching an innovative public-private initiative, utilizing the brightest minds across disciplines to rethink the way cities operate and develop new ideas for a 21st century framework. This October, we will be presenting a one-day forum entitled Reimagining Cities: Building Resiliency.

We will explore three key areas in reimagining a vibrant, urban core: arts and culture, economic development, and technology.

A snapshot of participants for this symposium include: Mick Cornett, Mayor of Oklahoma City; Lee Leffingwell, Mayor of Austin; Nelda Martinez, Mayor of Corpus Christi; Doug Dempster, Dean of the College of Fine Arts at The University of Texas at Austin; Mark Stern, Co-Director of Urban Studies at the University of Pennsylvania; Bill Spelman, Austin City Council; Mark Strama, Google Fiber Austin; Brian Kelsey, Principal at Civic Analytics, LLC; and many other prominent stakeholders.

JOIN the conversation to reshape our cities into more livable, vibrant and resilient communities.

Co-sponsored by the UT Opportunity Forum.
