NEW! Bay Cruises along San Francisco's bayshore . . .

Urban Forums: Walk & Talk

Satudays at 12 noon unless otherwise noted.

At various locations (see below)

A new kind of outdoor gathering to replace our normal schedule of indoor public talks. These will be shorter urban walks with a guest speaker or two, ending in a place where we can sit (safely) and have an open conversation about history, public space, and the themes that come up along the way.

(Due to pandemic restrictions, we have limited capacity on our tours. If you RSVP in the last week, you may be put on a waiting list.)

Our Public Talks are partly underwritten by the City Lights Foundation
