Last Friday, the Center for Community Growth welcomed Indiana residents to view a screening of YERT, “Your Environmental Roadtrip,” and to participate in a question and answer session with the produce Mark Dixon after the film. Take a look at some of the pictures below and see what we got up to!
“Are we doomed?” That’s how we started [in 2008], by asking people if they think we we’re doomed, hundreds of people–and the overwhelming response was that we’re not doomed, we just have to change really fast.” -Mark Dixon, speaking to audience at the Indiana Theater April 26th, 2013.
We would like to express our gratitude to the Indiana Theater for serving as a venue for our film screening, and to our sponsors, the Coalition for a Healthy County, the IUP E.C.O. Club, the IUP Women’s Studies Department, the IUP Graduate Literature Program, SAGE, the Three Rivers Community Foundation, and the Thomas Merton Center for supporting our film series. We would also like to thank the organizations and individuals who could participate in our event including the Coalition for a Healthy County, the Indiana Bike Coalition, the Indiana County Solid Waste Authority, representatives of the Indiana Farmers’ Market website and the Indiana Community Gardens, and lastly Scott Ellis, who provided music for our event. Finally, we would like to thank everyone who came out to see the film, and to thank Mark Dixon for attending our screening in person to speak with our audience and answer our questions. A follow-up post will be published soon, so stay tuned!
