Come “geek out” at OMCA! November’s Geek Out program theme, “Above the Bay: The Horizon of Coastal Edges and the Baylands,” explores how the land around the Bay has changed over time and possible approaches to living in a future with higher shorelines and beach erosion. Join the following guest speakers for a thoughtful and lively discussion in the James Moore Theater:

  • Robin Grossinger, Senior Scientist and Director Resilient Landscapes Program, San Francisco Estuary Institute
  • John Gillis, Emeritus Professor of History, Rutgers University and author of The Human Shore: Seacoasts in History
  • Letitia Grenier, Lead Scientist, Baylands Goals Climate Change Update
  • Ben Grant, Public Realm and Urban Design Program Manager, SPUR

Each installment of this vibrant discussion series features a range of speakers from authors, filmmakers, and artists to exhibition partner organizations, scholars, and scientists. Go on a deeper exploration of issues explored in the exhibition Above and Below: Stories From Our Changing Bay. This lecture series will include pre- and post-lecture activities such as film screenings, music performances and book signings. Stay tuned for more guest speakers!
