How has the city of Chicago changed over the past few decades? How has the perception of home changed with it?

Moderated by photographer and sociologist David Schalliol, a panel of artists, sociologists, professors and authors discuss issues of housing development, social housing policy, and urban planning to help bring a greater understanding of how home and community are intertwined.

Panelists include: Iker Gil, Director of MAS Studio and Editor in Chief of the design journal MAS Contex, D. Bradford Hunt, author and Associate Professor of Social Science and History at Roosevelt University, Natalie Moore, author and reporter for WBEZ and Adjunct Professor at Columbia College Chicago and Emmanuel Pratt, Executive Director for the Sweet Water Foundation, Artist-in-Residence at the Hyde Park Art Center and PhD Candidate in Urban Planning at Columbia University, New York.
