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 developmental 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; LaVerne Baker Hotep from the Center for Victims of Violence and Crime; Hilary Robinson, dean at the College of Fine Arts at Carnegie Mellon; Jon Rubin, artist, and the man behind The Waffle Shop; and Janera Solomon, executive director of the Kelly Strayhorn Theater.
And back to moderate this year is Chris Potter, renowned editor of the City Paper.
Audience participation is a must. Show your love.
