ARE BLOGS AN EFFECTIVE MEANS OF FURTHERING CHANGE IN THE COMMUNITY? DO THEY ENCOURAGE PEOPLE INTERESTED IN THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT TO SEEK POLITICAL ACTION OR DO THEY SERVE AS A REPLACEMENT FOR MEANINGFUL INVOLVEMENT?
JOIN THE DISCUSSION
The ongoing conversation of urbanism and historic preservation of St. Louis architecture and its city form is largely fueled by buzzing blogs and their readership. With so much work to be done toward the revitalization of our city, we ask how web-based advocacy of the betterment our built environment plays a meaningful role in that revitalization with the following panel:
ALEX IHNEN - blogger, URBANSTL.COM
MATTHEW MOURNING - blogger, STLDOTAGE
STEVE PATTERSON - blogger, URABANREVIEWSTL
Following forty five minutes of panel discussion we will open the floor to audience questions.
Please note this is not a BYOB event like many City Affairs. Urban Eats has a great selection of drinks, and they'll be extending happy hour prices for the evening. We encourage everyone to check out their food menu and support a local business.
To have your order ready when you get there, we encourage you to place an order ahead of time.
