The goal of this event is to rapidly and compellingly share knowledge and information about diverse topics, community challenges, ideas for change, and areas of opportunity to develop and improve the community, without overwhelming the absorptive capacity of the audience. There will be members of the community talking about seven different topics for 8 minutes. Participants will move from table to table to experience all of the talks. Topics for discussion are:
1. Housing economy and econnomic status in the community.
2. Food Insecurity
3. School Board, Education
4. Politics on local and social issues
5. Vice Mayor on the Town & Gown Relationship
6. Law Enforcement
After the talks there will be a reflection opportunity and Q and A.
We are encouraging students to reflect and share their perspectives on how they see the world today and most importantly how they will continue the journey by proclaiming through art and design how they will make a positive impact in the community to bring about change.
