Garrett serves as the President and Head Curator and he’s here today to inform us about the fascinating new exhibition at the map center entitled More or Less in Common: Environment and Justice in the Human Landscape. Through maps as well as photographs, images, and data visualizations, this engaging and thought-provoking exhibition encourages visitors to confront stories about how environmental conditions have sometimes served to worsen inequalities along lines of social division. On a promising note, the exhibition also points out how our shared environment offers the possibility to bring people together across differences and to move forward collaboratively for the common good. During the program, we’ll find out why and how the exhibition came about, we’ll go on a behind-the-scenes tour, and, in the process, come to better understand and appreciate some of the ways in which maps and data can better inform us about questions related to social justice and injustice.
