Facebook: www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=247034458671202 

Event Location: Service Center for Contemporary Culture and Community, 3819 Lafayette Road, in front of Shopper’s World at the mall

From 7:30 – 9 pm:  Participate in Public Social University, hosted by Katherine Ball, resident at Indianapolis Island, in the IMA’s 100 Acres: Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park. Started in Portland, Oregon as a free, open source of knowledge, Public Social Universities are open workshops taught by members of the community and for members of the community, in a playful, heartfelt style.

Public Social University feature:
“The Story of Water” – a comedic performance by Phil Van Hest
“Ink on the Ocean Floor” – soulful spoken word poetry by Rehema Mcneil and Theon Lee Jones of E.P.I.C.
“Water is Life, Meters Out” – women’s campaigns against water privatization, presented by Susan Hyatt
“A Day on the River” – a virtual day trip along the White River, told through the photographs of Angela Hermann and stories of Kevin Hardie
plus! Beer made from water filtered out the 100 Acres Lake

From 6-7:30 pm: Experience creative new perspectives on our favorite resource: water. Ten Herron designers explore the meaning of water resource protection in an art show called The Thin Blue Line. Given only the shapes and patterns reflecting the White River watershed and a mission to capture the essence of water resource protection in the context of these designer’s lives, each artwork becomes a personal exploration of a river that doesn’t divide a region, but holds a community together.

Presented by Lodge Design, Big Car, Herron School of Art & Design and IMA Indianapolis Island resident Katherine Ball.
