About the Event
How do we make sure that green spaces in Milwaukee and beyond are open and accessible to all individuals? What does it mean to create truly democratic public places? Can we look to such historical figures as noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted to answer such timely questions? Join a panel of Milwaukee-based academics and practitioners as they discuss these important relationships between the past, present, and even future of such important spaces.
