As part of the ongoing project, Chester Made Cultural Exploration Zone, the Pennsylvania Humanities Council presents a community history talk and workshop led by Yale University’s Laura Barraclough who works with communities to recover stories about ordinary places likely to be ignored or erased from history. The community history talk will take place February 2, 6–8 p.m., followed by the community workshop on February 3, 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.
