The All-State Foundation funds our program nationally, so each of the states has the opportunity to bring speakers of notoriety around civic-engagement issues. Sometimes theyre filmmakers sometimes theyre artists, journalists or scholars, says Fran Sterling, director of the Denver chapter of Facing History and Ourselves.
A Small Act, which premiered at this years Sundance Film Festival, is a feature-length documentary about the power of generosity and gratitude. Following the film will be a twenty- to thirty-minute dialogue with the director, in which the audience is encouraged to ask questions.
Snacks will be provided during the program, which takes place tonight at the L2 Arts and Culture Center, 1477 Columbine Street, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. An RSVP is required, as seating is limited and is filling up quickly. Call 303-316-4848, ext. 237, or visit www.facinghistory.org/communityconversations.
