    Patrice Milillo

    In addition to growing up heavily influenced by California’s cultural mélange of surf, skate, hotrod and hip-hop cultures, Patrice studied English Education and Creative Writing at California State University, Long Beach, and earned his teaching credential from San Jose State University. Pulling from and integrating these influences into his public school classroom, Patrice found that students from all backgrounds became engaged, educated and empowered to navigate and transform their worlds. Identical outcomes occurred during his time traveling and teaching abroad. Using the Arts as a tool for making personal connections and providing education had similar results no matter the socioeconomic status, country or age group. In his tenure as a public school teacher in San Jose, California, Patrice hosted a range of Arts-based events and provided community funded after-school Arts programs until he decided to create Art is Power, where he focuses his energies full-time on working with and documenting visionary Arts initiatives from around the globe.

    Resilience is Not Always Good
    Jose Puppim, Johor Bahru / Cambridge / Rio

    Many practitioners and scholars have emphasized the importance of strengthening urban system resilience. However, a less explored area of work is the resilience that affects urban areas but in adverse ways. Weak governance, conflicts and lack of resources and capacity in many cities have detrimental environmental and human outcomes that...

    A Walk Between Two Seas
    Jennifer Baljko, Barcelona

    I sit at a picnic table in a sliver of a park running alongside Istanbul Caddesi (street), not far from the Küçükçekmece Gölü, a natural lagoon on the Marmara Sea. It’s about noon on a Wednesday and, except for two ladies chatting on a bench a few meters away, I...

    City Making and Maker City: The Edge is the New Center
    Jay Valgora, New York

    When I look at cities, I always think about the edges. Urban edges: the gaps, the voids, “messed up” sections, interstices, leftover pieces, polluted or forgotten areas; sites along waterfronts, highways, rail lines offer the greatest challenges in cities today. Edges also offer the greatest opportunity today—for innovative architectural and...

    Yueyang Yu, Beijing Marianne Krasny, Ithaca

    Sometimes, as we strive to embrace our future, we are quick to abandon our past. In the process of changing and growing, do we let go of those elements that formed the foundation of who we are, the things that tether us to the place we came from, or do...

    Water is Everywhere in Georgetown, Guyana—Our Disrespect for it will Kill Us
    Melinda Janki, Georgetown, Guyana

    Guyana sits on what was once known as the “wild coast” of South America. The area was a dangerous swamp that struck terror in the hearts of European adventurers seeking the fabled city of El Dorado. Even Sir Walter Raleigh is rumoured to have come here in search of gold....

    Map and Explore: Hidden Hydrology
    Jason King, Portland

    Our cities are filled with hidden stories. Some of these tales are unlocked through conversations with long-time residents and oral histories, while others emerge through the written word, embedded in documents and biographies from the shapers and boosters that made our cities. Some hide in maps, a chronology of layers...
