Institute Presents an Award Winning Documentary:Inequality for All on Friday March 7th 6-8pm
|by Wes Chester, MA, CAGS, Institute Director|
As a part of the Expressive Arts Foundation’s commitment to community building and community discourse, we present movie nights on topics of interest to the aesthetic, intellectual and social health of our community. This month that movie is Robert Reich’s Inequality for All. We live in a community of vast disparities in wealth and opportunity, where 3000 people sleep in Balboa Park each night, even as it is being spruced up for the coming centennial celebration. We live in an economy where our graduate students are sometimes forced to suspend their studies due to finances, even as the country’s wealth grows to historic levels. This movie is a timely and well researched take on why such disparities exist, and why we may be a able to effect change by acting locally, as community members.
This viewing is more than a opportunity to see the movie. There will be a moderated discussion to follow, and we would love to add your voice to the discussion: for more info click here
