MILWAUKEE, WI – Historic Milwaukee, Inc. (HMI) and the Pabst Theater Foundation have partnered to create an entirely unique conversation series titled Envisioning the Seen. On Monday March 11, twelve dynamic, inspiring Milwaukeeans will gather on stage at the historic Pabst Theater to share their visions for the future of our built environment.
Envisioning the Seen is a cross between the fireside chat and an 18th century salon. The Pabst stage set is a Victorian living room, complete with bartender and barista. The atmosphere is casual and affable; the conversation is creative, unscripted, and truly Milwaukee. At Envisioning the Seen, speakers are encouraged to take creative risks, covering topics from Milwaukee’s foreclosure crisis to urban agriculture to public art. The last portion of the discussion will be dedicated to live tweet questions and audience Q&A. After the discussion the audience is invited to participate in a reception with the speakers.
The March 11 participants are Jonathan Jackson, Executive and Artistic Director of Milwaukee Film; Sue Black, President and CEO of Milwaukee Wave, Former Director of Milwaukee County Parks; Kyle Cherek, Host of Wisconsin Foodie on Wisconsin Public Television; Dasha Kelly, Founder and Director of Still Waters Collective; Adam Carr, Freelance storyteller; Sally Peltz, Founder and CEO of Legacy Redevelopment Corporation; Jeff Sherman, President and Co‐owner of Onmilwaukee.com; Evelyn Patricia Terry, Recipient of 2012 Wisconsin Visual Art Lifetime Achievement Award; Matt Rinka, Architect and Principal at Rinka Chung Architecture; Stephanie Allewalt Hacker, Senior Planner at GRAEF; Mike Mervis, Vice President and Assistant to Chairman of the Board, Zilber Ltd.; Barry Mandel, President of Mandel Group; and a stage Bartender, Evan Barnes.
