We know there will likely be new creations in the future that are difficult to envision now, but the ways in which people will organize themselves is also a big question that we may have a bit more control over.

Over the next two nights, a pair of free panel discussions will explore what those patterns could look like.

On Wednesday night, March 15, the Future Cities: Baltimore symposium will bring together folks from fields such as manufacturing, education, tech and the arts to discuss how they can work together as the city changes.

The panel features Baltimore Museum of Industry Executive Director Anita Kassof, Open Works General Manager Will Holman, The Contemporary Executive Director Deana Haggag, Downtown Partnership of Baltimore President Kirby Fowler and University of Maryland School of Social Work Dean Richard Barth.

It’s in the lobby of the recently reopened Hutzler Brothers Palace building, the city’s former “museum of merchandise was recently reopened and transformed into a site-specific art installation curated by The Contemporary. It’s in the same complex along Howard Street that also houses AiNET’s “telecom hotel.”
