Open House New York invites you to a conversation with OHNY executive director Gregory Wessner and Karen Karp, president of Karen Karp & Partners.

A national expert on food-related programs and policies, Karp explores the interconnection of the ways in which food is produced, processed, and distributed. The fragility of the world’s food supply has been one of the most alarming realities of the COVID crisis. This conversation will explore the impact that it is having at all scales of the food chain–from farmers and manufacturers to your local grocery–and how it may forever change the way cities feed themselves.


This conversation is free and open to the public and will be hosted live on GoToWebinar. Register today to receive an access link to the live webinar and to be notified once a recording is available after the event.

Conversations on the City 2020 is a series of conversations about the enduring value of cities at a moment of uncertainty about the future of urban life. Each conversation is organized around a broad theme, but all will explore the abiding joy of living an urban life–why cities continue to thrive, what propels them forward, and why our need for the human connection that cities make possible will always prevail over whatever challenges that may arise.
