harbortraces explores two different cultures and places that share similar characteristics such as evolving a harbor town, now surrounded by industry, interstates and rail systems as part of a metropolitan city. Heijplaat, Rotterdam, Netherlands and Brooklyn-Curtis Bay, Baltimore, Maryland, USA are the two cities that are the subject of an environmental cultural arts exchange between the residents of these places through the efforts of Steve Bradley, media artist/educator and Kathie diStefano, theatre artist/educator.
