"The chief worth of civilization is just that it makes the means of living more complex; that it calls for great and combined intellectual efforts, instead of simple, uncoordinated ones, in order that the crowd may be fed and clothed and housed and moved from place to place. Because more complex and intense intellectual efforts mean a fuller and richer life. They mean more life. Life is an end in itself, and the only question as to whether it is worth living is whether you have enought of it." -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Okay, so what does a city need? The answers are not easy to come by and they are not always agreed upon, but they are part of an important conversation that applies to us all. Join SDMA every Thursday evening for new art and new conversations on how we build better cities, better communities, and better citizens—all in the format of a salon.
