Join Independent Colleges of Indiana, Indiana Humanities and Indiana Philanthropy Alliance for a half-day interactive workshop called “Rewriting the Rural Narrative.” The events, which will be held at Manchester University on Oct. 9 and Hanover College on Oct. 10, will bring together community, business and academic leaders to learn about successful economic, government and arts and culture strategies that apply specifically to our rural communities.
The keynote speaker will be Ben Winchester, a rural sociologist with the University of Minnesota Extension who has worked in and for small towns across the Midwest since 1997.
In addition to Ben’s presentation and workshop, participants will enjoy lunch, short “ignite” sessions designed to inspire, and a panel of local leaders that will engage in a dialogue about the vitality of rural communities.
This event is open to the public–please share with colleagues, friends, government officials and business leaders in your community. More details to come! Registration ends on Oct. 2.
