Event description

Description

In literature and pop culture, Midwesterners are sometimes depicted as friendly and hospitable, while at other times we’re seen as closed-minded and suspicious of newcomers and immigrants. To put it another way, sometimes we’re Leslie Knope, rolling out the welcome wagon, and sometimes we’re the townspeople in Hoosiers, turning a cold shoulder to the new guy and skeptical of his new ideas.

What’s the reality of the community where you live—are you more of a Pawnee or a Hickory? How welcoming is your community to people who come from somewhere else, whether another country or just over the county line? What do we mean when we say someone is or isn’t part of a community? Who decides? Why does openness matter—and how can your community be more welcoming?

These are just some of the questions we’ll be discussing at “Chew on This: Who Belongs Here?” on September 24. Sign up for one of the locations around the state, where you’ll share a meal and fun yet in-depth conversation with other curious Hoosiers. Each table will be led by an expert facilitator, someone who brings special insight into the ideas of welcomingness and belongingness. Chew on This: Who Belongs Here? is presented as part of Indiana Humanities’ INseparable initiative. Your ticket price includes your meal and an unforgettably rich experience.

INseparable is a two-year Indiana Humanities initiative that invites Hoosiers to explore how we relate to each other across boundaries, real or imagined, and consider what it will take to indeed be inseparable, in all the ways that matter. Learn more at www.IndianaHumanities.org/inseparable.
