Packed Event Calendar in November

Unfortunately, I no longer have an events calendar on this blog. I didn’t like the way it was displayed through Google/Blogger, and I also had a tough time keeping up with events. November seems to have a good deal of intriguing events dealing with urban sustainability issues. The Spirit and Place Festival in particular is jam-packed. Here’s a brief rundown:

  • November 2: Doug Tallamy presents a lecture on how gardening can sustain wildlife at Clowes Hall.
  • November 3: Open House at the downtown location of Ball State’s College of Architecture and Planning.
  • November 8: Self-guided Indy Parks Bicycle and Walk Tour. Marian University hosts a tour of their Eco Lab presented by Green Broad Ripple. Booth Tarkington’s home is the setting for a discussion on how historic urban design facilitated community.
  • November 10: Neighborhood place-making workshop.
  • November 12: Ethan Kent from Project for Public Spaces at the State Museum. I’ll be there for sure. And that’s not all for this night, as an amazing-sounding Pecha Kucha takes place as well.
  • November 15: The main event of Spirit and Place, a conversation featuring former Mayor Bill Hudnut and innovative mayor of Braddock, PA, John Fetterman. In addition, the evening features a potluck dinner and a discussion about how food influences places featuring chef Neil Brown.
