The journey between “here” and “there” is filled with movement and meaning. How is this movement shaping—and being shaped by— identity, spirituality, public policy, and civic life? From the instruments of mobility in all its forms (education, money, waterways, trails, bus lines, bike lanes, policies, etc.), to the reasons (quality of life, self-expression, community development, health, persecution, pilgrimmage, etc.), JOURNEY will explore the dynamic passages of peoples and places.
If, as Robert Fulgum posits, “dreams are more powerful that facts,” how might we dream together about the future? What past dreams are present day realities? How do myths and stories, prophets and mystics, as well as art forms give voice to deep yearnings of the soul? What aspirations and ambitions do we have for Central Indiana in the next 20 years?
he geography of home is complex and nuanced. Home is where we start from; home is where we are; home is what we long for. Home is about place, relationships, opportunities, identity, community and connections. What does “home” mean for Indiana and Central Indiana as we celebrate 200 years?
