2016 Theme: Home
(November 4-13, 2016)

The 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?

2017 Theme: Power
(November 3-12, 2017)
Taken literally or otherwise, POWER is a complex reality.

POWER can be disquieting, discomforting, and oppressive.

It can also be illuminating, inspiring, and hopeful. 

POWER is a fundamental concept that shapes our world. From an “Almighty Power” to the “Power Rangers,” we integrate not only the word, but the use of power into our personal, spiritual, and community lives.

How do you want to explore POWER in 2017?
