The Greenest City: Climate Change as Opportunity @ Troy Innovation Garage
Jan 21 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Greenest City: Climate Change as Opportunity @ Troy Innovation Garage

GARAGE TALKS is a dynamic new series of keynote lectures and masterclasses that will explore issues of urbanism, community, and climate change.

The season of five events, hosted by the Troy Innovation Garage, will take place from September 2019 – May 2020 and will each feature a nationally-recognized speaker presenting case studies of urban problem solving in action. The Garage Talk series will culminate in a forum around public art in cities and produce a visually-rich publication documenting the yearlong conversation.

At each event, a panel of local leaders and thinkers from around the Greater Capital Region will respond to the visiting speaker’s presentation. The idea is to break down silos of provincial thinking even as we embrace the idiosyncrasies of our region—to draw out connections, lessons, best practices. All keynotes will be open to the public.

A Garage Talk Artist-in-Residence will live-illustrate each event, documenting the arc of the series as well as play a central role in the final event, which will include the creation of a commissioned piece of street art in the alleyways of Troy.
