In urban areas, conflict between “cultural expression” and “quality of life” is nearly inevitable. When people live in close proximity to one another, what is music to some will be noise to others. Throughout modern history, cities have had to find ways to negotiate these conflicts and manage them to create successful outcomes that satisfy most citizens.
In this forum, we will hear how a diverse range of American cities have addressed these issues, providing insights that may inform similar efforts in the New Orleans context. Through this event, we hope to shed light on ways New Orleans can address similar issues while doing more to promote our world-famous music and culture.
This event is presented by the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation and will be webcast live at WWOZ.org.
