The Effect of Tech on San Francisco with Cary McClelland and Kim-Mai Cutler

April 16, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0

$6 – $54
San Francisco is changing at warp speed. Famously home to artists and activists, and known as the birthplace of the Beats and the LGBTQ movement, in recent decades the Bay Area has been reshaped by Silicon Valley, the engine of the new American economy.

The richer the region gets, the more unequal and less diverse it becomes, and cracks in the city’s facade–rapid gentrification, an epidemic of evictions, rising crime, atrophied public institutions–have started to show.

Who has been displaced? How has San Francisco become the City emplematic of wealth disparity? What are the intersections between racism, gentrification, wealth creation, and politics amongst all of these changes.

Here to be in conversation are Cary Mclelland, who wrote the book Silicon City to investigate how the growth of the digital economy has affected San Francisco and journalist Kim-Mai Cutler.
