City Conversations Special Event!


psq_logo_colourPlease join us for a special edition of City Conversations, presented by SFU Public Square:

City to Citizens: We want a better connection with you

‘The city doesn’t listen to us’ has been a perennial complaint in Vancouver. The city is taking it seriously. On Thursday, June 20 at a special outdoors SFU City Conversations, public members of the Mayor’s Engaged City Task Force will describe their initial recommendations to improve the conversations between the city and its citizens—and then will engage the public in an extended conversation on the topic.

Our presenters are task force members Lizzy Karp, creator of Rain City Chronicles; Sam Chan, an SFU PhD candidate studying transformational change; and Lyndsay Poaps, former Vancouver Parks Commissioner. Then it will be your turn. City Conversations will be held at the Lot 19 Parkette (at the north end of Hornby St., between Hastings and Cordova St). You’re welcome to bring your lunch, and food will be available nearby.

When: Thursday June 20th 2013
Time: 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Location: Lot 19 Parkette (900 West Cordova Street – the park at the north end of Hornby St., between Hastings and Cordova St.)
Cost: Free

*Note* Guests are welcome to bring their lunch to City Conversations events

This special event is sponsored by the Downtown Vancouver BIA, in addition to Bing Thom Architects and SFU Vancouver.
