Charting the Road to Resilience:
From the Ground Up

This weekend, NOCD-NY will be contributing to Charting the Road to Resilience: From the Ground Up, a two-day Municipal Art Society convening to exchange lessons learned from Superstorm Sandy and to cultivate ideas for how to become a more livable and resilient New York.

Site visits offer an opportunity to see the effects of Sandy and to learn about local actions on the ground. Neighborhood organizations will host visits on Staten Island, The Rockaway Peninsula, Red Hook, the Lower East Side, South Street Seaport and several waterfront parks.

Conference Sessions, Saturday, January 12
Plenary sessions and hands-on workshops will enable an exchange of data, ideas and grassroots networking.
