Invite: Setting the Agenda for a Sustainable Future at Stony Brook Southampton SUNY


StonyBrook_Invite Join us for a Conversation with the Community Friday, October 9th 2009, 7:30pm-9:00pm Avram Gallery at Stony Brook, Southampton SUNY Curated by Carl Stein, FAIA & Marc Fasanella Followed by a reception in the Avram Lobby Gallery introducing the exhibit: Seeing Southampton Visually Investigating Issues that Affect the Environment of Southampton As we close the first decade of the 21st Century, we should take stock of how we dwell upon our Earth.  In the spirit of thinking globally and acting locally, a group of colleagues are initiating a dialog with Activists, Architects, Artists, Citizens, Designers, Educators, Environmentalists and Planners who shape the township of Southampton. The future of Stony Brook Southampton is inextricably linked to the fabric of Southampton Township, the East End of Long Island, and the global dialogue on the environment.  On the evening of October 9th we will host a symposium that brings together a diverse group of concerned individuals to canvas their notions of elements essential to the evolution of the town.  Our goal is to provoke, record, define and present a holistic set of interconnected guiding principles for evolving our community in the 21st century.  On December 13th, we will present an interim summation of this discourse.  During the years to come, we will widen our conversation to an international level.
