A Subsidiary of Provocate.org

Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Visit IndyBuzz's sister site, http://www.provocate.org/, which provides a context for the clusters of the events discussed in IndyBuzz.

IndyBuzz is back … and it’s BIG!

A roughly chronological schedule of some of the most interesting and thought-provoking events for Central Indiana through November. Click on the event, or try scrolling down the blog. As always, please tell me if you know of any events that ought to be publicized to a wider audience: John Clark at john@sipr.org. Thanks, and enjoy!
