      Free Public Workshop: "The Power of Place: Memorial Spaces in Providence"

      Mon, April 9, 2012 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM > Multiple locations: see description for details. Reservation Required. This free public workshop will explore concepts of public memorials by using Swan Point Cemetery through an onsite scavenger hunt, presentation on the development of local cemeteries, and a cognitive mapping exercise. Lunch and snacks will be provided at the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage. The event will be facilitated by Sharon Sekhon, the Founder and Director of the Studio for Southern California History, a nonprofit organization dedicated to critically chronicling and disseminating the region’s social history in order to foster sense of place. Examples of her work include “The Holiday Bowl History Project” (2004); “The Los Angeles Anti-Myth and Southern California Sense of Place: Navigating a Mediated Landscape” in Varieties of Urban Experience (University Press of America: 2006); and the LA History Archive - www.lahistoryarchive.org, which includes oral histories, ephemera such as postcards and photographs, illustrated maps, multimedia projects such as community quilts and poetry and lesson plans. Please email thinkinginpublic@gmail.com to RSVP.
