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.

Moving and Staying is at the heart of the immigrant's journey to America. University of Cincinnati Professor Emeritus of History, Roger Daniels, will address the history of immigration through Ellis Island and its profound influence on the Midwest. Attorney Paul Gresk, of Gresk & Singleton in Indianapolis, will join Daniels in a discussion of current and historical immigration policies and issues. After the presentation, experience the immigrant's journey of moving and staying in an exhibit on Ellis Island, port of entry for millions. Explore artifacts, interact with the Registry Clerk, and take advantage of the online Ellis Island research station.
