Highlights include: The Prison in 12 Landscapes and conversation with director Brett Story; Archaeoastronomer Tony Aveni from Colgate University; the data visualization work of the The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project; The Future of Sunset Park: Through the Voices of Immigrant Stories by Betty Yu; and the collaborative art/activism work of Laura Chipley and the Appalachian Mountaintop Patrol.
