KCRW’s Frances Anderton and Avishay Artsy Discuss “Bridges and Walls” Series

April 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

For the last two months, KCRW’s DnA: Design and Architecture has looked at the structures that connect us and divide us. They called the series Bridges and Walls. Now the series has wrapped but the conversation continues – and we hope it will continue in person with you!

On Thursday, April 12, KCRW hosts a wrap party and discussion inside the Helms Design Center.

6:30pm Reception
7:15pm Conversation and Q & A
8:30pm It’s a Wrap!

Following a reception with refreshments and light bites, KCRW’s Curious Coast reporter Jenny Hamel will interview Frances Anderton and Avishay Artsy, co-producers and co-hosts of Bridges and Walls, about the series and the questions it raised. Some guests from the series will be present to respond to specific questions and join in the celebration.  We’d love you to attend and bring your questions and observations about the bridges and walls that connect and divide us. RSVP here!

ABOUT BRIDGES AND WALLS
The impetus for the conversation was then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s repeated calls for building a border wall. KCRW looked into the real and political connections and divisions in California. The result was eight in-depth reports that featured a wide range of guests giving voice to the human impact of the infrastructure that shapes our state. 

Bridges and Walls is supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency. Learn more at www.arts.ca.gov.
