    Listening to others' stories helps to build compassion and empathy so that we can gain acceptance of other cultures.  This presentation will highlight the story of one man's flight from political oppression of his homeland and the lasting impact on his family.  As a child of an immigrant and a first-generation college graduate, I have navigated two diverse cultures for the past 50 years of my life.  I challenged my father's culture as well as embraced my heritage and forged a new path for myself.  Come and listen to my story and gain a new perspective on cultural diversity, compassion, and acceptance.

    Instructor:  Amy Davis

    The sights, sounds, and solitude of nature have so many benefits from relieving stress to increasing happiness.  In this class, we will share some of the health benefits of being outdoors but also share the joys and benefits of nature journaling.  Every participant will receive a journal and practice one entry in their journal on the grounds of the Douglas-Hart Nature Center using mixed media for their journal.  Participants will also learn how for years, educators and nature enthusiasts, like Henry David Thoreau, have used nature journaling to learn about their natural surroundings, make vivid observations of species, experiment in different art techniques, and simply enjoy nature around them.

    With the 1890s discovery of black crude beneath the rich soil in northwestern Clark County, a small community grew where the train serviced the oil producers.  The town became known as Oilfield.  As a school, stores and a hotel were built, Oilfield became a place to go.  You will learn some Illinois history by a 1930s storekeeper, as you enjoy lunch and homemade pie.

    Lunch available for purchase.

    In this Earth Day workshop participants will examine how personal lifestyle choices and societal services affect global resource use.  After Calculating our "ecological footprints" using the Global Footprint Network model, we will explore strategies for personally reducing waste at home, increasing the sustainability of our purchasing habits, and rethinking the way we look at resource use.  We can all take steps towards the same goal:  reduce, reuse, recycle, and rethink.

    Others can assist us, but we must find the path to self-knowledge ourselves, with art, poetry, memoir, music and nature as our guides.  In this discussion/workshop, we will look at the way Harjo weaves dreams, poems, and visions from her American Indian past into a narrative that reveals both the incredible sadness and the powerful beauty of her life.  After discussing what makes Harjo's poetry as well as her memoir so remarkable, participants will free-write on a childhood memory and then will experiment with adding poetry, dreams, song lyrics, etc. in order to enrich their memoir.  Sponsored by Coles County Arts Council.

    Instructors:  Charlotte England, PhD & Daiva Markelis, PhD
