A Collaborative Lunch & Learn Workshop & brainstorming session focusing on how to use contemporary art to strengthen local communities.
Presented by Kevin McKelvey of the University of Indiana and sponsored by Indiana Humanities.
Two hundred years of art and literature in Indiana, from T.C. Steele to George Ade, Gene Stratton-Porter to Robert Indiana, Mari Evans to John Green and
Adrian Matejka, serve as a jumping-off point for Kevin’s discussion of Indiana’s rural townships, towns, suburbs, and cities.
Place is central to our identity and culture in Indiana, and Kevin’s discussion will evolve into a collaborative workshop to identify historical or cultural assets in
your area and brainstorm ways to use contemporary arts, literature, and humanities to directly engage and strengthen local communities.
Attendees will leave with ideas and plans for socially engaged art, cultured programs, community engagement, and place making and place keeping.
