The term, “urban renewal” sounds like breathing life into a sleepy city. But the history of urban renewal has, in reality, been a far cry from revitalizing neighborhoods. This program will explore the impact of urban renewal through visual and storytelling mediums.

Join us for a viewing this documentary which tells the story of Kingston, New York’s transformation during one such project. Artist Marcus Anderson will also share his community mural, a vision of displacement in Saratoga Springs.The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film-makers, artists and special guests to talk about the history of urban renewal in Kingston, Saratoga Springs and other U.S. neighborhoods.

Please register online.
