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.

Nov. 9: Moving and Staying in a Global Indy

Panel discussion of the intersection between global and local featuring various community leaders

When: Wednesday 9 November, 7:00-9:00 PM

Where: Marian College, Bishop Chartrand Memorial Chapel, 3200 Cold Spring Rd. Indianapolis

Regardless of where we come from or how long we’ve been here, we all are members of an increasingly large, diverse, and global city. How can we move toward a more holistic and interconnected city, reduce alienation (among both newcomers and old-timers), and increase cooperation, trust, and mutual respect? A diverse community panel and interactive audience discussion will provide opportunities for airing questions and concerns and for networking and information sharing.
