On Friday, June 7, 2024, the Roger Williams University Public Humanities and Arts Collaborative (The Co-Lab) will host (Re)Telling: Crafting New Stories of Race and Place in Southern New England at the Providence Public Library in Providence, R.I. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, this regional public humanities gathering brings together organizations, groups, and institutions engaged in the public humanities work of researching, crafting, and sharing stories about race and place in our region. The conversations at (Re)Telling will consider methods for fostering and amplifying new and known narratives, engaging in public dialogs that foster collective understanding, and using stories to further justice-oriented action. The keynote program will feature Elon Cook Lee, Director of Interpretation and Education at the National Trust for Historic Preservation in conversation with Kristin Gallas of MUSE Consulting. RI Humanities Executive Director Elizabeth Francis will also offer remarks.
