Workshop: Why We Ask & Who We Ask

In this 45 minute workshop, participants will discuss the role of libraries and other institutional keepers of knowledge and explore simple approaches to transferring that authority to their own communities by challenging and adding to the record. We will generate questions about Chicago, neighborhoods, schools, or whatever line of local inquiry participants choose, and work together to compile potential sources. Participants can either take their questions with them to do their own research, or leave their questions in the Q & A card exchange for others to check out and research. 

This workshop is led by Nell Taylor of the Read/Write Library in conjunction with the exhibition PUBLIC SCHOOL.
