Community Dialogues

Peaslee Neighborhood Center has hosted a series of dialogues among people based in Over-the-Rhine to examine how dramatic development changes have affected quality of life. This began with an introductory dialogue, Gentrification 101: A Public Teach-In, which led into follow-up dialogues, initially separated by the income targets laid out in the Over-the-Rhine Comprehensive Plan of 2002, and rejoined with a cross-income dialogue to compare the perspectives and truths captured through artistic expression around their experiences across economic and racial divides, which you can see reflected in the Gentrification Cards and Community Dialogue Pillowcases. More recently, we held Tools for Equitable Development, a public workshop in which we have identified viable ways to sustain and support the priorities of our community.
