A ‘Fishbowl’ Conversation: Exploring the Balance Between Responsible Economic Development, Gentrification and Displacement
The goal of this ‘fishbowl’ is to open a new level of understanding on the balance and dynamics of responsible economic development, investment and displacement. And further, that that may help build solutions to help reduce or minimize the enduring challenges associated with gentrification/displacement that communities and its residents face.
10 – 15 attendees sit in an inner ring to participate in a prompted facilitator-led conversation designed to solicit honest communication on gentrification, investment, development, displacement, etc
Approx. 20 attendees sit in an outer circle preparing to ‘tap-in’ as a speaker participant. A tap-in trades places with someone in the inner ring, allowing for fluidity of ideas and participation to emerge throughout the session.
The majority of attendees will realize significant value and lessons learned from
being active-listeners to the dynamics of the exchanges.
