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.

March 14: Learn from one of the best about children and international conflicts

Siobhán McEvoy-Levy shares her wisdom about the impacts of conflict on children

When: Wednesday, March 14 7:00 PM
Where: Church of the Saviour, 6205 Rucker Road Indianapolis

Ensuring the safety and proper development of children is the stated goal of the global community, yet in some countries, children are exposed to unsafe labor practices, human trafficking, and participation in combat. What role do private donors, governments and international organizations play in ensuring health care, education and safety for the world's children? Sponsored by the Bob Calhoun Memorial Great Decisions Series.

If this event sounds interesting, you should check out Siobhán's talk on the issue of children and conflicts March 27. In the meantime, you can hear Siobhán in this fascinating podcast on "Sound Medicine" on the impact of war on children. Kelly Campbell of Ambassadors for Children is likely to give a more hands-on perspective about helping kids in her talk about South Africa on March 6. One of the three stories featured in the film "Iraq in Fragments" (showing February 23-March 1) follows an 11 year old Iraqi boy.
