History and Theory in Action! — the Our Malibu Beaches & Play the LA River projects
AMS workshop with Jenny Price.
Jenny Price will be talking about how she’s been deploying her training in History and American Studies to co-design on-the-ground public projects–for 2 locations, the LA River and Malibu beaches–to make public space and nature visible in a city that’s notorious for disappearing both.
Open to the public – RSVP required: firstname.lastname@example.org
