|The 2018 North Suburban Planning Council’s Breakfast is a great opportunity to network with local planners and business leaders. We are thrilled to be hosted by Dennis A. Clarke, President and CEO of Cummings Properties, who will be giving our keynote speech.
We are also excited to have the Stoneham Chamber of Commerce join us. Chamber representatives will participate on a panel with Erin Wortman, Director of Planning and Community Development for the town of Stoneham, highlighting the work the two have been able to achieve through collaboration. This panel will be moderated by one of MAPC’s Economic Development Specialists.
Municipal staff, local elected officials, small business owners, area employees, and residents are all welcome to attend.
How do monuments and memorials shape our understanding of place—and what we choose to forget? And how might we reframe public memory to address the harmful legacy of colonialism in our region? This artist panel will consider how remembering and forgetting of Indigenous peoples and colonial history shaped the landscape and collective consciousness of Greater Boston—and the necessary role of Indigenous artists in shaping more just public spaces.
Reclaim? Recontextualize? Relocate? Remove? What should we do with monuments that no longer reflect our shared history and collective values (or never did to begin with)? This conversation among artists, designers, and educators will explore how creative commemoration can help us see the past and present in a new light—and chart a path toward more just futures.
