Hunters Point Shipyard: A Paradigm Shift
Saturday, January 25, 2020 11 a.m.
Over the past year Dr. M. Reza Shirazi, the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Global Fellow at UC Berkeley’s Institute of Urban and Regional Development, has conducted a major study of the Hunters Point Shipyard development. As part of his research, he conducted dozens of interviews with individuals representing a wide variety of governmental agencies and community groups.
Dr. Shirazi will present his findings, as well as his insight into the current state of the site cleanup, the problems and challenges faced by Bayview/Hunters Point communities in particular, the future of the artist studios in the Shipyard project, and lessons Shipyard stakeholders might learn from similar redevelopment projects.
Liz Hager, Hunters Point Shipyard artist, will moderate the conversation.
