Re-inhabiting New Orleans workshop

We never find out about these things soon enough, and why do they always do this stuff during the day when people have to work!

The challenge of responding to the damage and displacement caused by Hurricane Katrina is enormous. In New Orleans, there is much uncertainty about the state of housing, infrastructure, environmental protection, commercial activity, employment, and the social networks of the city. To address these challenges and draw on the city’s strengths, it is essential to work within a framework of collaboration. In response, you are cordially invited by Xavier University, the Tulane University School of Architecture and the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research to participate in a two-day workshop, Re-inhabiting New Orleans, on November 29-30, 2005. This workshop will provide an opportunity for residents, community-based organizations, architects, urban planners, environmental experts, and local government representatives to work together on long-term recovery strategies for neighborhoods, communities and the city as a whole.

The invitation is a downloadable PDF. Information about presenters can be found at
