It’s a wrap… and you’re invited to the party!

For the last two months, KCRW’s DnA: Design and Architecture has looked at the structures that connect us and divide us. We called the series “Bridges and Walls”. Now the series has wrapped but the conversation continues – and we hope it will continue in person with you!

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

Following a reception with 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 specific 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.

The impetus for the conversation was then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s repeated calls for building a border wall.  We looked into the real and political connections and divisions in California. 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.

Bridges and Walls is supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency. Learn more at www.arts.ca.gov.
