UMBC professors present their collaborative research in two Baltimore communities with a shared legacy of industrial development: Brooklyn-Curtis Bay (Baybrook) and Sparrows Point. The event features Mapping Baybrook, a media-based documentation of projects in Brooklyn-Curtis Bay and a film screening of Mill Stories: Remembering Sparrows Point Steel Mill. Members of Sparrows Point and Brooklyn-Curtis Bay communities also discuss the challenges they face and possible futures.

The Brooklyn-Curtis Bay community is also a subject of Harbor Traces, Baltimore-Rotterdam committee’s ongoing artist exchange that pairs this area of Baltimore with a parallel neighborhood in Rotterdam called Heijplaat. Artist Steve Bradley has been instrumental in this exchange over the past couple years. Today‚Äôs talk is a good opportunity to hear more about his activities in Brooklyn-Curtis Bay
