Act One —— The Best and Worst of Times Rapid growth brings investment, jobs and opportunity, but it can also strain physical infrastructure and bypass, or even rupture, community networks that have developed over years. How do we better translate financial capital into social capital? And how do we manage the social contract when the ‘future’ is not evenly distributed?

We will be treated to a performance by Kuinka, a local four-member band carrying on the city’s heritage of musical innovation with an electronic twist on folk tradition.
