Artist & Lecture Series - 2015-16

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 2015-2016, we celebrate the power of identity in our
sense of self, our sense of “we”, and in our sense of place. 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.
