This event is part of Radicals Assemble! After hours at the PHM: “Ideas worth fighting for have often been debated under the cover of darkness, in secret and away from prying eyes. On the second Thursday of the month, we invite you to join the radicals at the PHM for a series of special after hours events. We’ll be showcasing radical heroes, debating current events and hosting exciting and quirky happenings. Our galleries will be open all evening for you to explore.”
