Attendees will have a catered lunch. Following Jackson’s talk, there will be a time for a question-and-answer session with guests.
“A luncheon series shouldn’t just be about lunch. You have 40 minutes to engage with an audience. It’s a real opportunity to offer a perspective, open a mind and to bring something new to our audiences, whether that’s cultural, artistic or business. … That’s what we’ve tried to do with this series is to make the hour that you spend at the Fitton Center a time where you take something real away with you. With that, we have a great mix of guests, and we’ve tried to draw locally as much as possible,” MacKenzie-Thurley said.
Other upcoming guests for Celebrating Self include Mike Dingeldein (CORE Fund and City of Sculpture) on March 1; Tony Orr (Hamilton City Schools) on April 5 and Carolyn Mazloomi (artist and advocate, Women of Color Quilters Network) on May 3.
