Revision as of 16:42, 22 November 2019

Shaping San Francisco hosts Public Talks on a variety of topics on Wednesday nights, about 18 times a year. Our topic themes vary, but we've grouped them over time into these categories: Art & Politics, Ecology, Historical Perspectives, Literary, and Social Movements. These Public Talks have been archived in audio and more recently in video in the Shaping San Francisco collection at the Internet Archive, and embedded in archival pages at shapingsf.org. We are now moving them to the archive at Foundsf.org, a process that will take some months (this note will disappear when the process is complete).

Unlinked Talks mean there is no audio or video available.
