The public is invited to register for the annual “Community Connect Forum,” Saturday, April 28, in Buffalo, N.D. Participants will connect with community members from across the state and region, as well as faculty, staff and students from the University of North Dakota, to discuss the theme Mapping Our Community Stories.
Panels, workshops and brainstorming sessions will give participants a chance to learn about finding stories in their communities, telling community stories effectively using media and social technologies and organizing community stories for achieving social change.
In addition to the breakout sessions, there will be an ongoing collaborative service project in the community throughout the day for students from UND and other campuses.
The forum will culminate with the world premiere theatrical production of Off the Map, written by UND playwright Kathleen Coudle-King and features true stories from rural North Dakota communities.
This is the annual community-university forum sponsored by the Center for Community Engagement in partnership with the community of Buffalo. Registration and lunch are complimentary.
