East of East Closing Event: A New Archive in the City


South El Monte Arts Posse and Casa de El Hijo del Ahuizote will present our archive “East of East Mapping Community Narratives in South El Monte and El Monte.” We’ll share our approach to the archive, our process of generating primary sources with community, and, of course, some of the awesome material that we’ve gathered. Most important, we want to discuss the future and uses of the archive with community. Please Join Us in brainstorming the future by examining our present and past. Open to the Public, free food.
