Event description

Description

Join The Texas Tribune for the launch of our Tenth Anniversary Tenth Talks — a series of snappy talks on the next 10 years of Texas, recorded live with a small studio audience.

Our first Tenth Talks event is on the future of cities in Texas, from land use and bike lanes to homelessness and housing. Guest speakers include:

Natasha Harper-Madison, the Austin City Council member who represents Austin’s District 1, the part of town where she was born and raised. She is the chair of the Health and Human Services Committee and sits on the Housing and Planning Committee, Judicial Committee, and Regional Affordability Committee.

Beth Martin, the executive director of Houston Bike Share, a nonprofit whose mission is to implement, expand and operate a Houston-based bike share program that is environmentally friendly, financially sustainable and affordable.

Evan Taniguchi, an urban planner and principal/owner of Taniguchi Architects in Austin.

Eva Thibaudeau, CEO of the Temenos Community Development Corp. and a licensed clinical social worker who has worked in the field of homelessness since 1996. Previously, she served as chief program officer for the Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County, where she oversaw a large reduction in homelessness in the Houston area.


Details

This event is free and open to the public. Street parking is available all around the venue. Doors will open at 11:50 a.m. (no early admission), with the recording starting promptly at noon.
