New Wyoming Narratives, Samuel Western and Guests

"Can Wyoming step into the same river twice? How to harness the future without ignoring the past."

March 1 and April 5
Berry Center Auditorium | 7:00 p.m.
10th & Lewis | UW Campus | Reception to follow

March 1 Stories are powerful. Are Wyoming's current narratives (independence, self-reliance, small government) grounded in reality or imagined? If they're imagined, then what narratives are real? How do they help Wyoming make wise choices concerning the future?

April 5 Discuss the path to blending Wyoming's past with a tomorrow that's hot on our heels. Legislative action can only go so far. It's fundamentally up to us to chart the course. But do we have the capacity to do so? If so, how do we put that capacity into action?
