Wide Angle Films and Talks

Wide Angle Films and Talks is a new venture of the Community Resilience Guild. The monthly programming hosted at Art House will focus on helping Goshen see a bigger picture of itself through interactive and introspective mixed-media experiences. Ranging from feature-length documentaries to panel discussions, interviews, and presentations, these events will provide opportunities to dive deeper into current issues and events. We hope topics will challenge conventional thinking, provoke reflection and conversation, and inspire creativity and collaboration.

These events are free and open to the public. Donations are accepted and will help support future programming.
