Understanding Housing Inequity in Indianapolis

Presented by Herron School of Art and Design at Herron School of Art and Design

Community development leaders will discuss the factors contributing to displacement and propose solutions to improve housing access in our city’s neighborhoods. The conversation will focus on how policy, economics, and culture intersect in our rapidly changing urban environments.

Panelists will include: Jeff Bennett, Deputy Mayor of Community Development, City of Indianapolis; Lourenzo Giple, Deputy Director of Planning, Preservation, and Design in the Department of Metropolitan Development, City of Indianapolis; Amy Nelson, Executive Director of the Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana; and Wildstyle Paschall, an artist and Central Indiana Community Foundation Community Ambassador.

Laura Holzman, Ph.D., an associate professor of art history and museum studies at IUPUI and Public Scholar of Curatorial Practices and Visual Art, will moderate the panel.

Before the discussion begins, Jordan Ryan, a Herron alumnx, archivist, and interdisciplinary architectural historian, and Angie Calvert, an IUPUI School of Liberal Arts alumna, scholar, and lifelong resident of the Near Southeast neighborhood, will give brief presentations as primers.

This event is free and open to the public and will take place in Eskenazi Hall’s Basile Auditorium from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Guests can attend in person or virtually via Zoom by going to go.iu.edu/4IDM. The in-person audience will be encouraged to interact with one another, and the panelists will participate in a traditional Q&A session.
