Join us for an incredible and unforgettable experience this summer!
Picturing Milwaukee is a participatory action-research project that explores history and heritage of local neighborhoods. This immersive learning experience provides students a unique opportunity to learn basic skills, ethics, theories and methods within their academic disciplines and then apply such learning in real-life situation. Our students come from multiple academic disciplines and include local community members.
