PLAYA, Lake County Libraries, and Oregon Humanities invite you to a community conversation about place, power, home, and belonging. “This Place” conversation will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 4:00 PM at Playa’s facility in Summer Lake, immediately following PLAYA Presents. PLAYA Presents will run from 2:00 - 4:00 PM and feature artists, studio tours, and readings. The Chamber bus will run for free for the event. Call the Main Library to sign up 541-947-6019.
The conversation and gathering will be an opportunity for all Lake County residents to explore their relationship to the places they’ve come from and the places they’re in now; to consider how communities have lost or gained land and power, and how this has affected individuals and groups within these communities; to consider the history of neighborhoods, communities, and the state and how those places have changed over time; and to explore options for meaningful engagement with their places and communities going forward.
This free public program is provided in partnership with Lake County Library District, PLAYA, and Oregon Humanities. This program is sponsored in large part by the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Humanities in the Public Square program and the Common Good initiative. PLAYA is a nonprofit organization supporting innovative thinking through work in the arts, literature, natural sciences and other fields of creative inquiry.
