Imagine a globally connected set of urban studios inviting citizens to work on their best ideas for regenerating disinvested neighborhoods.
That’s the ambitious vision of South African Alice Cabaret, founder and director of GRIND, the Global Regeneration Initiative for Neighbourhood Development. GRIND is headed to Detroit and other U.S. and European cities after making its debut in Johannesburg. Alice is also urban strategist for Propertuity, developers of Johannesburg’s most exciting new creative district, the Maboneng Precinct.
Alice is this week’s guest on “Knight Cities.” Listen to our conversation here. And sign up for the “Knight Cities” newsletter to get alerts as soon as new conversations are posted.
