What if we could time travel to visit the Hartford of the future? What issues will be solved and which will still need to be addressed? We can take a sneak peek at the new city—the city Hartford will become—by looking at innovative organizations in Hartford that are solving persistent problems of housing, health, community building and technology with an eye to the future. Whether they are converting an abandoned factory into a community center, offering techies a place to invent and innovate, bringing visitors to Hartford for a festival or providing affordable housing, these organizations imagine a better Hartford and take steps to make the new city the best city it can be.
Panelists include: Kristina Newman-Scott (MECA City of Hartford), Gina Frederico Muslim (Community Solutions, Northeast Neighborhood Partnership), Steve Yanicke (MakeHartford), and Cary Wheaton(Billings Forge Community Works).
