Details About the talk

Tijester Gejts, grnčar po struci, a društveni aktivista po zvanju, želeo je da uradi nešto dobro zbog žalosnog stanja u njegovom kraju, u južnom delu Čikaga. To je i učinio, pretvorivši napuštene zgrade u centre zajednice, koji povezuju i inspirišu one koji još žive tamo (i da privuče i one koji nisu odande). U ovom strastvenom govoru Gejts opisuje svoje napore da izgradi minijaturni Versaj u Čikagu i deli sa nama svoje žarko ubeđenje da kultura može da bude katalizator za društveni preobražaj u bilo kom gradu, bilo gde.
