Friday Faves: July 1

Connect to links we love, programs we admire, events to look forward to, folks to follow and great work in the public humanities.

We’re starting the new month with an exciting list of faves. From our Historic Bar Crawl to a 600-year-old oak tree, our humanities highlights cover it all below.

Keira, president and ceo:

Kristen, director of communications and development:

  • Did you miss our Historic Bar Crawl last week? Check out photos from Duck & Cover and see how we crawled through the Cold War era in Indianapolis.
  • Listen to Episode #1 (of 3) of a podcast developed in partnership with our friends at the Prindle Institute for Ethics. Their podcast, called Examining Ethics, will examine three moral and ethical questions raised in Indiana’s first 200 years of statehood: infrastructure, immigration and incarceration. In this first episode, listen for our own Leah Nahmias, Keira Amstutz, and a handful of experts, including board member Jim Madison, former Governor Mitch Daniels, and more.

Leah Nahmias, director of programs:

George Hanlin, director of grants:

Jacqueline Cromleigh, communications and community relations manager:

Bronwen Fetters, executive assistant and program associate:

  • Roald Dahl was one of my favorite authors as a kid, and Steven Spielberg’s movie version of his beloved book The BFG comes out today! As a side note, 2016 is the 100th anniversary of Dahl’s birth. If you haven’t read much Dahl aside from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I recommend The WitchesMatilda, and his autobiography Boy: Tales of Childhood.

Claire Mauschbaugh, communications intern:
