INconversation, a new program from Indiana Humanities, engages a small, intimate group in interesting, engaging and insightful conversations with some of the nation’s most intriguing thought leaders. This question-and-answer style discussion involves the thought leader, a moderator and the audience.
Our first INconversation took place on Nov. 30 with urban analyst Aaron Renn, and was moderated by Indianapolis Star journalist Erika Smith. The discussion was about the future of Indianapolis’ urban neighborhoods. For a resource guide we put together on Indianapolis organizations, click here.
