The Historical Society of Pennsylvania (HSP) collaborates with Taller Puertorriqueño to host a workshop for Audience Embedded, a collaborative research program designed to engage members of Philadelphia’s Puerto Rican community in developing new programming, inspired by the history preserved in both organizations’ collections. Participants are invited to learn about the history of Philadelphia’s Puerto Rican neighborhoods, view artwork and archival material, and offer suggestions for what to include in HSP’s new online exhibition, launching this summer.
