Baltimore magazine Presents: The Visionaries

Thursday, February 8, 2018 at The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway Theatre

This inaugural event for Baltimore brought together magazine editors, local trail blazers, and 30 Baltimore Visionaries named in the recent February issue to talk about what the future holds for our city. Hosted at the SNF Parkway Theatre, Baltimore’s digital editor, Jess Mayhugh, moderated a compelling panel comprised of five inspiring Visionaries, in which she and the panelists took a deeper dive into tackling some of the biggest questions facing the city today such as concerns regarding development and gentrification to diversification in the workforce and how to uplift underserved populations. We invited attendees to ponder: What is your vision of Baltimore? Before concluding the panel, Baltimore invited Mayor Catherine Pugh to speak on her administration’s perspective of Baltimore’s future before finally turning the mic over to the audience for a brief Q&A session emceed by Mix 106.5 Morning Show host Reagan Warfield.

 Following the panel, guests engaged in vibrant discussions with Baltimore’s Visionaries among other Charm City change-makers while enjoying bites from Dooby’s.
