One Vision Many Voices, the year-long celebration of Appalachian culture and community connections, resumes Feb. 11 with the first of four film-screenings at Allegany College of Maryland and Frostburg State University.
These four events, which explore environmental issues relevant to the region and its people, begin at 7 p.m. on Mondays in February and March. All are free and open to the public.
The film series is a major component of the One Vision Many Voices project of The Appalachian Independent, an online newspaper serving Allegany County and the surrounding area. Made possible by a Maryland Humanities Council grant with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, OVMV uses the arts and humanities to spark dialogue about the community and its vision for a healthier, more sustainable future.
A panel discussion will follow the film screening, and representatives of local organizations who are working with these issues will be present for discussion with interested individuals.
The post-film discussions at ACM will be facilitated by students and members of the college’s Democracy Commitment initiative, while those at FSU will be led by students in the University’s Sociology of the Environment course.
In “Getting to the Point: Five Issues, Five Films,” food, water, energy, the economy and the environment – subjects with deep impact – are examined in five short but eye-opening films that explore some of the biggest concerns of our times. (March 11 in FSU’s Compton Science Center room 226)
