About Hindsight 2019: 

The Hindsight Conference is an all-day conference in New York City on urban planning through an equity lens. Hindsight Conference 2019 is themed Erasure, Remembrance, and Healing. 2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, the 100th Anniversary of the 1919 “Red Summer,” and 400 years since enslaved Africans first landed on occupied Powhatan territory, historically renamed Jamestown in Virginia. There are many other anniversaries in 2019, but we acknowledge that the history of time and place remembered are imperfect. This year’s conference theme reflects on the intersection of urban planning, policy, and community development, with the erasure of history, collective amnesia, the movement of remembrance, and community healing.

Through a day of workshops, performances, panels, and walking tours, we challenge attendees to reflect upon how our narratives shape our built environment, our communities, and our relationships with one another. We consider which stories are told, which are silenced or capitalized, and who tells the stories. Through remembering, we embark on a process of healing ourselves, our communities, and our cities.

This conference was organized by the members of the Diversity Committee of the APA New York Metro Chapter. The event is sponsored by the APA New York Metro Chapter. We would like to thank the following entities for their chapter sponsorship that helps to make this event possible: WSP, AKRF, HDR, HNTB, VHB, Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects & Planners, WXY, Sam Schwartz, NYC EDC, Philip Habib & Associates (PHA) Engineers and Planners, STV, BFJ Planning, Nelson/Nygaard, FHI, Kimley Horn, Public Works Partners, Clearly Consulting, Callison RTKL.
