An Evening with Janette Sadik-Khan
Tampa Theatre and Oxford Exchange – in conjunction with the City of Tampa and the Tampa Downtown Partnership – are excited to welcome one of the world’s foremost authorities on transportation and urban transformation, Janette Sadik-Khan, LIVE to the Theatre’s historic stage at 6:30pm Tuesday, June 7.
Sadik-Khan served as New York City’s transportation commissioner from 2007 to 2013 under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, overseeing historic changes to the city’s streets—pedestrianizing Broadway in Times Square, building nearly 400 miles of bike lanes, seven rapid bus lines and creating more than 60 plazas citywide. A founding principal with Bloomberg Associates, she works with mayors around the world to reimagine and redesign their cities. She chairs the National Association of Transportation Officials/Global Designing Cities Initiative, implementing new, people-focused street design standards, which have been adopted in more than 150 cities across the United States and around the world.
Tickets are $35.00, and admission includes a paperback copy of Janette Sadik-Khan’s new book, Street Fight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution. Doors open at 5:00pm, so come early for networking!
The author will be available for a post-discussion signing line (but no photos, please!) if guests would like to get their book personalized. Oxford Exchange will also be selling additional copies of the book in the lobby.
