Every month the Brooklyn Historical Society presents public programming that brings together exciting speakers and engaging topics. This April, hear how artists are taking action in New York City, at the society’s Artist Resisting Gentrification discussion. Artists, often deemed harbingers of gentrification and neighborhood rebranding, are also using their medium to take charge of their communities’ future by bringing attention to economic pressures and pushing for protections for long-term residents. Speakers include Arts East NY Founder and Executive Director Catherine Green, author of How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood Peter Moskowitz, and artist William Powhida.
