As part of the ongoing project, Chester Made Cultural Exploration Zone, the Pennsylvania Humanities Council presents a community reception and conversation featuring Chicago's Theaster Gates and Detroit's Kimberly Driggins focused on reclaiming, repurposing, and rebuilding cities with arts, culture, and their communities. 

The reception will take place Friday, March 16, 6–8 p.m., followed by the conversation on Saturday, March 17, 10 a.m.–12 p.m.

Both events are free; registration is required.

The Chester Made Cultural Exploration Zone is a creative space that engages the community in the collection, interpretation, and revitalization of Chester’s underground, through programs with interdisciplinary practitioners in history, creative placemaking, and urbanism.
