On October 29th, 2011 One City, One Prompt, a community event which is part of a larger national/international* project, will be presented in Rutland, Vermont. It is a project of the Transformative Language Arts Network (tlanetwork.org), which in this, its inception year, is taking place in more than 70 communities around the States (and in Japan and Egypt!). The facilitator is a Masters student in the Transformative Language Arts concentration at Goddard College, who is underwriting this project, and will be facilitating this as part of her field work.
The theme this year is Community with a sub-theme of Transformation: two vital words for the community right now. Local people will have the opportunity to voice their feelings about our community in any written form they wish. The resulting creative works will be shared with the country/world on a website maintained by TLAN. The Rutland Free Library is sponsoring/hosting the event and the Rutland Herald will be providing media coverage.
A Facebook Page has been set up where details will be posted and you can ask questions or share ideas. The prompt itself has not been determined yet and input from the community will be asked for. So please “Like” so you can be a part of that.
