Race, class & environment subject of discussion, March 2

We’re pleased to partner with Seattle Art Museum and the Cascade Land Conservancy to present a panel discussion exploring the intersections of race, class and the environment. How does diversity shape a livable, urban environment? How do artists and environmentalists promote diversity and help to define what diversity means in Seattle?

The discussion, part of SAM’s Art and the Environment series, will take place 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, March 2 at the Olympic Sculpture Park’s PACCAR Pavilion.

Join choreographer and Artistic Director of Spectrum Dance Theater Donald Byrd, who will moderate the discussion with panelists Dr. Sharon E. Sutton, FAIA, professor of architecture and urban design and director of CEEDS (Center for Environment, Education, and Design Studies) at the University of Washington; Eddie Hill, farms program manager at Seattle Tilth and former director of Creatives4Community; Julie Nelson, director of the Seattle Office for Civil Rights and Tracy Rector, executive director and co-founder of Longhouse Media and Native Lens.

The event is free, but advance registration is required by Tuesday, March 1.
