Since last summer 2018, we’ve been building a project in collaboration with the LA County Department of Regional Planning, exploring the rich heritage and identity of LA County’s East San Gabriel Valley. This summer, we will be sharing residents’ hidden, untold, or forgotten histories of this unique region through public events, a newspaper, a book, and a website.

This Fall, the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum will join the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability to produce a three-night conversation between the people of Los Angeles and the leading experts on migration. Looking across species and time, we strip away politics and nation-state boundaries to discover the causes and outcomes of migration for all life forms.

Join us October 18 (A New Home, The Effects of Migration) and November 1 (Los Angeles, A Migration Haven) for these live conversations, moderated by Ruxandra Guidi.

Free and open to the public. RSVP here.
