"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
OCOTILLO—Join an evening with artist and environmental scientist Carly Creley, where she will share her current project Imperial Geographies. The project examines the hidden inequities and environmental justice issues that disproportionately affect residents of the Imperial and Mexicali Valley regions. It highlights the work of local residents, and asks citizens across the US to take responsibility for human and ecological rights in the region. A series of paintings, photographs, writing, and video interviews with residents, workers, and activists bring the human stories behind environmental justice issues to life.
