What Does it Mean to be an American? A Community Conversation

Friday, July 12 from 10:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Free and open to the public, including lunch; limited to first 50 registrants


 

Morven is honored to collaborate with the National Writing Project and Rider University for a screening of the film American Creed in Morven’s Stockton Center and a community conversation on what it means to be an American.

Film screening from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. followed by a quick “write and share” facilitated by Dr. Heather Casey of Rider University and Morven’s Curator of Education & Public Programs Debra Lampert-Rudman.

Small group conversations led by Rider University NWP facilitators on the central theme of “What it means to be an American” will take place during a noon lunch-and-learn session.  Beginning at 1:00 p.m., garden walks and themed writing in and around Morven’s gardens will take place concluding with a share/wrap up/invitation to continue the conversation followed by Museum tours.
