All Day Conference: Housing Across Borders - Mexican and U.S. Housing in Perspective The aim of this conference to discuss housing in Mexico and the U.S. together: looking for connections, identifying elements for comparison and exploring common processes shaping housing—broadly construed—on both sides of the border. Through this conversation we hope to extract lessons as a provocation that can lead us to testing our ideas about what housing and city mean.

Agenda:
8:00 AM to 9 AM Continental breakfast
9:00 AM to 9:10 AM Welcome
9:10 AM to 9:30 AM Opening Remarks
9:30 AM to 11:00 AM Panel 1: Home and Patrimony: Housing and Belonging in the U.S. and Mexico
11:00 AM to 11:15 AM Coffee Break
11:15 AM to 12:15 PM Roundtable Discussion 1: Home and Patrimony
12:15 PM to 1:15 PM Lunch
1:15 PM to 2:45 PM Panel 2: Designing the City: Housing Policy, Urban Planning and Rights
2:45 PM to 3:00 PM Coffee Break
3:00 PM to 4:00 PM Roundtable Discussion 2: Designing the City

8:00 PM Stage: Having Our Say New Village Arts could have a mega-hit on its hands. Their Having Our Say is easily one of the year's very best thus far. Sadie and Bessie Delaney (Emily Mann based the play on actual African-American sisters) have invited us to celebrate their father's birthday. It's 1993. He passed away long ago. In fact, the sisters have outlived just about everyone else in the family. Sadie is 103, Bessie's 101. They participated in over a century of American history, and givedeeply felt personal accounts of life under Jim Crow laws, the Harlem Renaissance, and Civil Rights. Whilequiet Sadie avoids confrontations,"Queen" Bessie would rather die (and almost does) than cowtow to prejudice. Milena (Sellers) Phillips' Sadie and Sylvia M'Lafi Thompson's Bessie are outstanding. It's as if each plays a bucket list role. And their ritual-like, extensive preparations of a meal are amazing to behold. Christopher Scott Murillo must have imported hisintricately-detailed set from the Delaney's Mt. Vernon home. Alldesign elements jibe beautifully. And it's impossible to believe that Melissa Coleman-Reed made her directorial debut with this truly splendid show.
