Influential Source presents Conscious Conversation: How Does Gentrification Impact Local Youth?

This month’s #consciousconvo will focus on the subject of gentrification and the impact it has on local youth. Many discussions on the issue of gentrification have centered on its impact in regard to housing affordability and resident socioeconomic status. However, as rapid development forces local communities to evolve, what is the impact of development on youth living in gentrifying communities? Also, what is the effect of gentrification on the lives of youth that are displaced from these communities.

There are many aspects of community transformation that have serious implications for local youth, such as access to employment opportunities and changing school demographics.

Join us on April 27 to engage in a conscious conversation with local experts and community members on the effects of gentrification on local youth. We’ll begin at 6:00 pm with informal networking, and the conversation will begin promptly at 6:30 pm.

Format: Connect, Converse, Create!

Conscious Conversation: Is Gentrification Really a Bad Thing?

 

Influential Source presents Conscious Conversation: Is Gentrification Really a Bad Thing?

This month’s #consciousconvo will focus on the subject of gentrification. As a topic that has drawn much criticism in discussions centered on economic and community development, gentrification has become commonplace in urban America. Within the Nashville metropolitan region gentrification is occurring in a widespread manner. Evidence suggests that this trend will continue in the foreseeable future.

Given the low likelihood of a reversal in this trend, how do local communities cope with the permanent effects of gentrification? Is it possible for displaced community residents to benefit from gentrification?

Join us on February 25th to engage in conscious conversation with local experts and community members on the topic of gentrification.
