PUBLIC SPACE CAMP (PSC) – Nell Taylor – Read/Write Library Workshop

Grassroots Research Workshop w/ Read/Write Libraries

In this workshop, led by Nell Taylor,  participants will discuss the role of libraries and other institutional keepers of knowledge and explore simple approaches to transferring that authority to their own communities by challenging and adding to the record. We will generate questions about Oak Park and the Chicago area, neighborhoods, parks, public art, streets and transportation, or whatever line of local inquiry participants choose, and work together to compile potential sources to answer them using the expertise of local media and our family, friends, and neighbors.
