LYCEUM: THERE & BACK – A Panel Discussion

March 22 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Spring Lyceum Series—MAKING HOME

What does it mean to be home? Making a home is on ongoing process rather than a one-time choice, reflecting an active effort to sustain natural and human communities through the years. Our spring lecture series, centered on that process, features speakers ranging from a landscape painter whose artistic practice has both rooted him here and helped preserve the environment he loves, to a panel of people who grew up here, left for other places, and returned to re-make their homes and businesses.

What are some of the dimensions of having a home in the Champlain Valley? During this informal discussion panel, people who’ve returned to our area to establish homes and business will explore why they chose to move back here, what they missed most while they were elsewhere, and what they rely on the most here.

Panelists are Deirdre Forcier McNerland, Director of Marketingat Westelcom and Co-Owner of the DackDoor Group, Dan Dohman, who does general carpentry and historic restoration for Sawteeth Carpentry, and Alyssa Carroll, television editor on the ABC dramaA Million Little Things.

$5 / students free.
