Bridges and Walls: a celebration!

Written by

It’s a wrap… and you’re invited to help us celebrate!

For the last two months, KCRW’s DnA: Design and Architecture has looked at the structures — both physical and invisible — that connect us and divide us in California. We called the series called Bridges and Walls.

The impetus for the conversation was then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s repeated calls for building a border wall.

The result was eight in-depth reports that featured a wide range of guests giving voice to the human impact of the infrastructure that shapes our state.

Now the series has wrapped but the conversation continues. And we hope it will continue in person with you.

On the evening of Thursday, April 12, we will host a party and discussion at the Design Center at Helms Bakery in Culver City.

Following drinks and bites, KCRW’s Curious Coast reporter Jenny Hamel will interview Frances Anderton and Avishay Artsy, co-producers and co-hosts of Bridges and Walls, about the series and the questions it raised.

Some guests from the series will be present to respond to questions and join in the celebration.

We’d love you to attend and bring your questions and observations about the bridges and walls that connect and divide us. Register for the event here.
