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.

This is the Big One for ethnic Indiana. Go and you won't be able to think the same way about "white bread" Indianapolis. Dozens of foods, demonstrations of arts from various cultures, songs, costumes ... what a treat. Let's doff our colorful regional hats to the Nationalities Council of Indianapolis for making this possible.

But the International Festival ought to be a small part of engaging yourself in Glocal Indianapolis. When you scroll down through the events featured in IndyBuzz you ought to get a sense of how many groups and individuals are working every day to educate the rest of us, to connect the residents of Central Indiana to the rest of the world, to make us better and perhaps to help solve some of the bigger problems facing the world. It ought to be a reminder that for many of us, every day is International.
