The antidote is community

PRESENTED ON OCT 24, 2016
IN CHRISTCHURCH @ VOL 29

Community builder Summer Hess questions what you could do with sudden wealth, and how you could put it to good use. She shows an example with her work creating the Saranac building, a unique LEED platinum renovation of a historic building. The building is only part of the story and it is up to people to collectively imagine what ideas inhabit the space.
