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.

Dec. 9 -- The Social Event of the Season ... MidWest/MidEast Friendship Dinner

Dec. 27 — Jan. 9, a group of Muslim, Jewish, and Christian Hoosiers will make a trip to the Middle East. Their purpose: to identify potential opportunities for Indiana groups to partner with groups in Jordan, Israel and the West Bank in order to help solve the region's toughest problems. The group will meet with groups working in Iraqi refugee camps in Jordan, strengthening in schools in Bethlehem, and fostering Muslim-Christian dialogue in Jerusalem.

And you can be part of it.

All the expenses for the group are covered, so 100% of what is raised December 9 will be delivered directly to the organizations engaged in vital work in the region. It will be our way of demonstrating that we want to be part of the search for solutions.

Looking for a unique holiday gift? In the name of one of your friends, family members, or co-workers, donate money to one of the organizations with which we will be partnering ... we'll send you a certificate describing the purpose of the MidEast/MidWest trip, and explaining why the group receiving the donation is so important.

Your chance to be part of this initiative goes beyond donating money to innovative and essential groups. Follow the trip's blog at http://midwestmideastpartnership.blogspot.com/. Look for opportunities for your congregation, school or club to form a partnership with groups in the MidEast. Join one of the several trips to the region in 2010. Attending the MidEast/MidWest Friendship Dinner on December 9 can be a step toward being part of something truly special.

To research a seat or (even better!) purchase a table, please RSVP to Charlie McDonald at charlie@mcdiii.com.
