Keira, president and CEO:
Leah, director of programs and community engagement:
I really like this project at Kenyon College documenting the experiences of Latinos in rural communities. It’d be great to see something like this for Indiana.
Now this is some creative public humanities: a group in Malta is creating interpretive dances based on community stories about their maritime history. It’s incredibly moving—literally, emotionally, intellectually.
National Parks Lego sets?! Make it happen, internet!
Jacqueline, communications manager and program associate:
- Prosecco, books, afternoon tea and little cakes? Sign me up! The U.K. replaces Black Friday with “Civilised Saturday.”
- Two fantastic Indy shops were named on Mashable’s list of “50 great local shops in the U.S. for finding the perfect holiday gift.” Definitely recommend stopping by Silver in the City and Homespun this season!
