    What is the value of care in librarianship? How are libraries defining and supporting their communities? This event aims to explore the ways libraries are integral to the community and cultural ecosystems, and the current challenges with maintaining accessibility for these local communities.

    This event will feature workshops lead by local artists and cultural practitioners doing the work of “radical librarianship." Workshops are interactive, family friendly, and facilitated by the ARTLABDIRT, and the Labs at DC Public Library.  


    This program is part of the Brown Art Ink 2018-2019 “Citation and Memory” programming cycle, a project of Brown Girls Museum Blog. This event is FREE and open to the general public.
