‘Beyond the Headlines’ workshop rescheduled to Oct. 9

May 05, 2020

The Wisconsin Humanities Council is hosting a free workshop from 1 to 5 p.m. on Oct. 9 at Nicolet College Northwoods Room aimed at community leaders, journalists and concerned citizens, focused on Wisconsin’s Water Future. This event was originally scheduled for May 8. For more information and to register,visit https://beyondtheheadlineswisconsin.org.

The workshop will involve several panels addressing different local water issues followed by break out discussions about what water stories — from hazard mitigation and drinking water safety to fisheries and climate change — the public needs to understand. Resources/contacts and opportunity for Q&A will be provided and participants should become part of the discussion about how to better communicate Wisconsin’s water stories.

Beyond the Headlines is a program of the Wisconsin Humanities Council, funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation as part of their democracy and the informed citizen project, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Local partners for this event include WXPR and Nicolet College.

Those who registered for the event before the date change due to COVID-19, should be notified via email about the change. This date change may entail some changes in panelists who have other commitments.
