Connecting Our Heartlands: Towards an Inclusive American Creed
Jan. 19, 2023
4:30-6pm EST / 3:30-5pm CST / 2:30-4pm MST / 1:30-3pm PST
Join us for a special event with three leading civic scholars and three young adult community organizers and photographers, co-creators of the ongoing American Creed: Citizen Power documentary initiative, a follow-up to the 2018 American Creed PBS Special.
We’ll look at how helping young people explore foundational ideals like freedom, fairness and opportunity can galvanize and challenge rural communities.
What to expect
A “Show and Tell” by three young adult co-creators of the American Creed: Citizen Power documentary film and photography initiative will be framed by a panel of civic luminaries: David M. Kennedy, Eric Liu, and Danielle Allen. We’ll explore how to harness the idealism of rural young adults.
Following the photography presentations, Kennedy, Liu and Allen will facilitate breakout sessions to delve deeper into ideals, experiences and solutions rural young adults can pursue, together, in spite of differences.
Who is it for?
This event is for rural leaders, educators, organizers, democracy advocates and photography enthusiasts and will introduce audiences to the American Creed: Citizen Power documentary initiative.
Bonus: Special workshop for educators
Educators, stick around for a half hour interactive workshop on how to bring photography activities and other Citizen Power curricula to your community. | 6pm-6:30 pm EST / 5-5:30 pm CST / 4-4:30pm MST / 3-3:30pm PST
