Artist & Lecture Series - 2014-15

The South Puget Sound Community College Artist and Lecture Series brings a diverse group of distinguished scholars, activists and artists under a common theme: “Reflections." For 2014-2015, we celebrate role and power of women. Our presenters are recognized nationally or internationally for their work.  Our hope is that they will initiate courageous and purposeful discussion within our community concerning critical and contemporary issues.
