Friends of Planning Spring Social 2020

The University of Toronto Planning Alumni Committee (PAC) and the Department of Geography & Planning are pleased to invite alumni, faculty, and fellow city builders to the 24th Annual Friends of Planning Spring Social. We hope you will join us for an evening of mingling and networking, live music, hors d'oeuvres, and a keynote address on a pivotal planning topic.

This year we are pleased to welcome Jay Pitter to provide a keynote address entitled "Safe in the City: Unpacking the complex environmental and social dimensions of urban safety."

Jay Pitter, MES, is an award-winning placemaker and author whose practice mitigates growing divides in urban centres across North America. Recently, Jay consulted on Edmonton’s heritage plan; co-developed the City of Toronto's new shelter design guidelines, delivered a professional development process at UN Women headquarters in New York City; and led (RE)IMAGINING CHEAPSIDE, a Confederate monument placemaking process in Lexington, Kentucky. She is currently teaching an inclusive placemaking and planning course at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Architecture and has been named the John Bousfield Distinguished Visitor in Planning by the University of Toronto for the 2019-2020 academic year. In the upcoming months, Jay’s HER City project will engage women in public space audits and play. Her forthcoming book, Where We Live, will be published by McClelland & Stewart in 2020.
