Sunday Platform - Curt Collier: The Biology of Political Conflicts @ New York | New York | United States

Sunday Platform – Curt Collier: The Biology of Political Conflicts

Sunday, April 28, 2019
11:00 am

At the New York Society for Ethical Culture
2 W 64th St
Ceremonial Hall – 4th floor

Admission: Free

Learn more at this official page here…

Recent work of noted evolutionary biologists suggest that what may drive our political conflicts may have less to do with ideas and more to do with deep-seated survival skills. Evidence for this is seen in field observations of species closely related to humans, but sociologists also spot this same behavior within humans as well. While biology drives most of human behavior, as is often the case, “biology is not destiny.” How can we ameliorate our biological drive towards conflicts with others, and might other biological drives be used to counter this challenge?

Curt Collier is the National Youth Programs Director for Groundwork USA, an organization created by the National Park Service and the EPA. He has created a number of award-winning programs that bring new audiences into the national parks and has created a number of career pipelines for youth of color to enter conservation related fields. Annually, Collier oversees corps and training programs in Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Glacier National Parks, as well as youth programs in Gateway National Recreation Area in New York. He served as an Ethical Culture leader for over 20 years at Societies in St. Louis, Riverdale-Yonkers, and for the New York Society.

The Cooper Union/Citi Mayoral Forum Series :: Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan
Apr 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Cooper Union/Citi Mayoral Forum Series – Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan / April 30 with special appearance by Detroit DJ Juan Atkins

April 30, 2019 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm

The Great Hall of The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art
7 East 7th Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues
New York, NY 10003
(6 to Astor Place/R-W to 8th Street)

The event is free and open to the public. General public should reserve a space at http://bit.ly/DetroitCU. Please note seating is on a first come basis; an RSVP does not guarantee admission as we generally overbook to ensure a full house. Made possible with support from Citi.

With declining federal resources, aging infrastructure, and shifting economies, city leaders are activating all available assets, including grassroots organizations, non-profits, private philanthropists, and corporate leaders to initiate transformational progress. Nowhere is this more true than in Detroit, a city undergoing a near-complete metamorphosis.

While other cities are experiencing industry-related growth, Detroit’s growth is unique in that the change is driven and informed by the vision of a citizen-focused, inclusive city that is responsive to new, emerging, and nascent social, political, and economic needs. Mayor Mike Duggan has been at the helm of this transformation since taking office in 2013. Duggan has formed and relied upon expansive, cross-sector public-private partnerships. For example, the City of Detroit has partnered with the Kresge Foundation to promote and expand strategic transit-oriented development to increase long-term equitable opportunity, with Quicken Loans to spur homeownership and inclusive economic growth, and with local non-profit organizations like Osborn Neighborhood Alliance for social services. And don’t forget how art and music are also integral to a city’s growth.

Hear from Mayor Duggan about this work and more as part of the first program of The Cooper Union/Citi Mayoral Forum Series. Following his talk, Mayor Duggan will be joined by Rip Rapson, President and CEO, Kresge Foundation, Maurice Cox, Director of Planning and Development for the City of Detroit, and Juan Atkins, a Kresge Artist Fellow and a pioneer of Detroit techno, for a conversation about Detroit. Jennifer Bradley, Executive Director for the Center for Urban Innovation at the Aspen Institute, moderates.

Juan Atkins will also perform a set as part of the evening’s program.

Michael E. “Mike” Duggan is the 75th mayor of Detroit, Michigan – elected in 2013. He received 52% of the primary vote as a write-in candidate, then 55% of the vote in the mayoral run-off in November 2013. He ran for Mayor of Detroit on a platform of financial turnaround, crime reduction and economic development – believing that, “Every neighborhood has a future.”

Rip Rapson is president and CEO of The Kresge Foundation, a private, national foundation dedicated to expanding opportunities in America’s cities through grantmaking and social investing. He has led foundation to adopt an array of grantmaking and investing tools to improve the economic, social, cultural and environmental conditions of urban life through six defined programs: arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services and community development in Kresge’s hometown of Detroit.

An 1983 alumnus of The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union, Maurice Cox is the director of planning and development for the City of Detroit. Cox previously served as mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia; design director of the National Endowment of the Arts; and director of the Tulane City Center in New Orleans.

As an originator of techno music, Juan Atkins transformed electronic music and joined the ranks of Detroit’s musical legacy. In 1981, Atkins and Richard “3070” Davis co-founded the groundbreaking electro group Cybotron, which laid the foundation for Detroit techno. In 1985, Atkins founded his own label Metroplex Records and recorded his first single with his new group Model 500. Toward the end of the 1980s, techno music swept the planet with Atkins in high demand for live performances around the world.

Jennifer Bradley is the founding director of the Center for Urban Innovation where she has led projects on: how local-level regulations can help or hinder innovation and economic inclusion; how cities can prepare for the advent of autonomous vehicles; how inclusive innovation happens in businesses, philanthropies, local governments, and non-profits; and the challenges that women and people of color have in accessing capital.

Todd Crow is a pianist whose artistry has brought him critical superlatives in the U.S. and notably in England – there largely through regular appearances on the BBC. The New York Times has described his playing as “heroic, [showing] endless flair, color and stamina.” The Times of London has praised his performances as “spine-chilling” and “exhilarating,” and The Wall Street Journal said that his playing exhibited “stunning control and a wonderful sense of musical architecture.”

Todd was a member of the Vassar College faculty for 49 years, retiring in June 2018 as the George Sherman Dickinson Professor of Music. The Vassar College Department of Music is presenting Todd Crow in recital at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall on Thursday, March 23, 2019, at 7:30 pm. His program is a hearty meal of virtuoso pianism: Mendelssohn’s Fantasy in F-sharp minor, Op. 28; Schumann’sKreisleriana, Op. 16; Debussy’s Etude No. 10 “pour les Sonorités opposées”; Three Préludes by Henri Dutilleux; and Bartók’s Dance Suite.

Thomas Sauer, a colleague of Todd Crow’s at Vassar, had this to say: “It was my good fortune to have served on the Vassar piano faculty with Todd Crow for 19 years. He was the kindest, most selfless and generously supportive colleague imaginable, and his personal pianistic standards would be the envy of a performer at any stage of a performing career.”

“Many of his colleagues consider him to be a pianist’s pianist,” wrote the critic Jed Distler on ClassicsToday about Chopin: The Late Mazurkas (MSR, 2018), Crow’s latest in a series of distinguished recordings that have earned him a string of critical acclaim over the years. Two discs in particular of performances recorded for BBC broadcast – Todd Crow: The BBC Recordings, Volume 1 (2010), music of Mendelssohn, Mendelssohn/Liszt, Moscheles, and Schumann; and Volume 2 (2013), piano variations of Brahms and Dvorák – elicited from Fanfare magazine what is perhaps definitive praise for this pianist, calling him “…among the aristocrats of keyboard artists,” and saying this: “Todd Crow is an American treasure. He combines a solid technique and beautiful keyboard touch with complete mastery of the music.”

In recent years he has appeared as soloist with orchestras in the United States, England, Italy, Israel, the Czech Republic, and elsewhere, and in recital or chamber music at the Berlioz/Dutilleux Festival in Manchester, England, Washington’s National Gallery of Art, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, London’s Wigmore Hall, and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as Avery Fisher Hall and Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. He has performed frequently with such groups as the Brentano, Borromeo, Composers, Concord, Shanghai, Miami, Daedalus, Jupiter, Miró, Parker, Dover and Escher string quartets, the New York Philharmonic Ensembles, St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble, and with many eminent soloists including famed jazz clarinetist Benny Goodman.  He made his Carnegie Hall debut as soloist with the American Symphony in 1992 and his London orchestral debut at the Barbican Centre with the London Philharmonic in 1986.  He has been heard on BBC Radio for many years in both live and recorded performances, and on National Public Radio in the USA, as well as many other American radio stations.

Since 1996, he has been music director and pianist of the Mt. Desert Festival of Chamber Music in Northeast Harbor, Maine, now looking forward to its 55th season. In addition to frequent appearances at the Bard Music Festival, he has been heard at the Casals Festival, Music Mountain, Maverick Concerts, and other festivals. His CDs include sonatas of Haydn and Schubert, Liszt’s transcription for piano solo of Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, works of Sergei Taneyev and Dohnányi, the complete works for cello and piano by Mendelssohn (with cellist Mark Shuman), and Ernst Toch’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the NDR-Hamburg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leon Botstein. Released in 2016, a CD entitled Of Love of You–A Tribute to Emery W. Harper features world premiere recordings of new American works for piano, soprano, and bass-baritone by Bolcom, Liebermann, Rands, Stucky, Del Tredici, Wyner, and others. Todd Crow can also be heard on the Albany, ASV, Bridge, First Impression, Golden String, New World, and Toccata Classics labels.

Born in Santa Barbara, California, Todd Crow is an honors graduate of the University of California and The Juilliard School. Among his teachers have been Erno Dániel, Ania Dorfmann, and at the Music Academy of the West, Emanuel Bay. At the age of 13 he was awarded an indefinitely renewable scholarship for the study of music composition by the Epstein Foundation of Chicago, and as a teenager he won prizes for his works including a competition sponsored by the National Society of Arts and Letters.  At age fifteen, he won the Santa Barbara Symphony Young Artists Competition.  He is also editor of the volume Bartók Studies (Detroit, 1976).  In 1986 he received the University of California’s Distinguished Alumni Award. www.toddcrowpiano.com
