Watch a video of panel discussion on race, class & environment online

We recently partnered with Seattle Art Museum (SAM) and the Cascade Land Conservancy to present a panel discussion exploring the intersections of race, class and the environment at the Olympic Sculpture Park’s PACCAR Pavilion.

Missed the talk? You can watch the video here.

The discussion covered topics including how diversity shapes a livable, urban environment; how artists and environmentalists promote diversity; and how they help to define what diversity means in Seattle. The event was part of SAM’s Art and the Environment series.

Choreographer and Artistic Director of Spectrum Dance Theater Donald Byrd moderated the discussion with panelists Dr. Sharon E. Sutton, professor of architecture and urban design 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.
