Candy Chang starts community conversations that she asks the locals to finish.


Join us on Dec. 10 for an evening with inspiring artist Candy Chang to discuss how interactive public art can transform communities and the people who live in them. Her work includes Before I Die, a global public art project that The Atlantic called “one of the most creative community projects ever.” She has exhibited her work at the Venice Biennale, the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and the Centre for the Living Arts. Ms. Chang is a TED Senior Fellow and a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, and was named a “Live Your Best Life” Local Hero by Oprah Magazine. She was recently named one of the Top 100 Leaders in Public Interest Design and one of Ad Age’s 50 most  influential creative thinkers and doers. This is an evening you don't want to miss.

MPC’s Urban Think & Drink series features prominent thought and action leaders in an informal setting, sparking conversations on creating livable urban environments. Come and enjoy a drink, a talk and good company.
