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.

Spirit & Place is here!

The business time of the year for events is upon us, Spirit & Place. No one should stay home from now until Thanksgiving week. And don't forget that there are many events even beyond the 150 excellent offerings of S&P.

Here is a quick overview of the most interesting and important events scheduled for the first three weeks of November. For suggestions, see the IndyBuzz essay about designing your very own S&P schedule. You could check out an updated thematic overview of events this month.
