Work/Life Winter Series: Discussion on Work
Join us for three virtual talks this winter on how people have worked, rested, and played in the Blackstone River Valley. Together with historians, artists, and craftspeople, we’ll explore the struggle for a balanced life.
During this first discussion, we’ll explore what it’s like to work in a restored mill building. We will start with a brief, ranger-led history of Slater Mill. Participants will then get an insiders’ view of Hope Artiste Village from the Outsider Collective and Anastasia Azure, artists who work in the Hope complex.
Together, we will talk about new uses for old buildings in and around Pawtucket and how concepts of work have changed over time. We look forward to hearing your questions and comments. This program is presented as a collaboration between Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park and Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor.
This discussion is part of a series. Be sure to join us on February 12 and February 26 for additional conversations, all hosted on Zoom. You may RSVP for this talk (or all three!) here: https://forms.office.com/g/7Ntkj71Kk4.
