About This Event:

As part of the Niagara Foundation Panel Series, the Niagara and the Caring Neighbor Foundations organize a symposium on the meaning of neighbor in a world that technology today is shrinking into a crowded neighborhood. The goal of the symposium is to explore caring as key for diverse neighbors to survive and prosper in a world rapidly shrinking into a micro-neighborhood with an emphasis on Jewish, Christian, Muslim, political and academic perspective.

The invitation to participate in the art display has been extended to area high schools including Williamston, Holt, Grand Ledge Haslett, East Lansing, Lansing, Okemos, and St. Johns. Participants at the symposium will have opportunity to rate the content and ingenuity of each exhibit. Later, at a Capitol Reception sponsored by the Niagara Foundation scheduled for April 23rd, awards will be presented to the winners.
