Library programs are free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Parking is available in the Central Library garage for $6 after 5 p.m.
This event will bring together artists, scholars and activists looking at the changing geographies and histories of the Seattle region. Many of their projects are combining a critical understanding of culture, politics, and ecology with forms of mapping and visual representation.
PGSP seeks to highlight public histories, documentary film and photography, and community-driven environmental justice. The aim of PGSP is to help forge connections between these different projects, bring them into conversation with each other to identify emergent common interests and questions, and facilitate cooperative support for ongoing development of these projects according to their priorities.
