Democracy Is The City is part of the Onassis Festival 2019: Democracy Is Coming, co-presented by The Public Theater and Onassis USA.
Jane Jacobs wrote that “cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody” — echoing Aristotle, who (millennia earlier) wrote that “any city which is truly so called, and is not merely one in name, must devote itself to the end of encouraging goodness.” How does the city — our city — encourage goodness, and how are we the people helping (or hindering) the creation of a city that we want to live in? Democracy is The City examines the municipal level of democracy, from the creation of commons to their appropriation, and how our democratic rights are being sold to the highest bidder in our own backyard.
