Speaker Series: Innovative Solutions to Housing Needs

The City projects that over 700,000 people will be living in Boston by 2030. Increased demand for housing leads to increased housing costs, which can contribute to a number of issues and disruptions. Additionally, displacement of families, caused by economic and environmental forces, is exacerbated by the limited supply of affordable, family-oriented housing units. The Sasaki Foundation is a recognized leader in facilitating research initiatives and supporting innovative strategies to improve housing affordability, promote a more diverse housing stock, and address gentrification and displacement. Join our team of housing experts for a lively panel discussion and networking event in the Incubator at Sasaki.  - What are the challenges and opportunities in pioneering innovative housing models andsystems to improve affordability, promote a diverse housing stock, and address gentrification and displacement?- How can we accelerate the pace of innovation in the housing sector to foster inclusion and equity across Boston neighborhoods?- How can we lower barriers facing low-income tenants in the Boston metropolitan area?- How can we improve public health through new housing and community designs?- How can design be used to help keep people in their homes and communities (e.g., community land trusts, zoning, accessory dwelling units, re-parcellation of land)?- What are opportunities to incorporate resilience strategies for buildings or education for residents into building retrofits or new construction?

"X" by Alistair McDowall

X by Alistair McDowall

This November, dare to venture to the far-reaches of our solar system and to the outer limits of the human psyche in Flat Earth Theatre’s production of Alistair McDowall’s reality-bending masterpiece X. Boston theatre favorite Lindsay Eagle returns to the directing chair for _X_’s New England debut, which also launches Flat Earth Theatre’s 14th season YONDER: a yearlong exploration of humanity’s quest for the stars, and the consequences therein. On the dark, frigid wasteland of Pluto, a team of astronauts find themselves marooned and out of contact with Earth. With nothing to do but wait, the crew struggles to maintain their sanity as the very fabric of reality begins to unravel around them. Channeling sci-fi horror classics such as Alien, Event Horizon, and Sunshine, Alistair McDowall’s groundbreaking play poses the question: Can you solve for X?

About Watertown, MA
Watertown Massachusetts was founded in 1603 and was one of America's largest settlements in that time. Watertown quickly became an important center for trade, commerce and industry.

Watertown once served as the temporary seat of government during the Revolutionary War. Paul Revere, who once resided in Watertown actually printed the first money for the Province of Massachusetts here.

Canvas sails for the U.S.S. Constitution were woven here at the old Bemis Mills and the renowned Stanley Steamers and the black Crawford stoves were manufactured in Watertown. Just outside of Watertown Square on Mt. Auburn Street is where the first Star Market store was opened.

Watertown is strategically located just 6 miles northwest of Boston and has easy access to all major highways in eastern Massachusetts. Providing an extensive public transportation system that includes rail and bus lines which provide access to the Logan International Airport and the world.

On April 19, 2013 the whole world was watching Watertown, MA as the Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokar Tsarnaev was arrested after a day long manhunt that shut down the City of Boston and the surrounding towns while law enforcement went door to door searching for the suspect. It ended when a resident on Franklin Street reported that they found bloody evidence that the suspect was hiding in a boat parked in the back yard of the home.
