On the Horizon for 2019
If you’re looking for a reason to visit the Carey Institute, join us on February 9, 2019 at the Carriage House Restaurant for a five-course beer pairing dinner held in collaboration with the Helderberg Brewery. The Carriage House Restaurant is regionally recognized for its excellent cuisine which emphasizes the use of fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The brewery, which grew out of the Institute’s Craft Beverage Incubator, is part of our Sustainable Communities Program which helps to build and strengthen rural economic opportunity that is sustainable, resilient and climate aware.
April 2019 will be a busy month for the Logan Nonfiction Program as it sees the arrival of its eighth cohort of Logan Nonfiction Fellows. LNP strives to maintain an informed, educated and engaged citizenry by supporting the development and publication of nonfiction work covering the most essential issues in our world. The fellowship has now had over 100 participants and has seen its alumni works published on a regular basis to critical and commercial success.
LNP will also host its second Impact Conference on April 11-12, which will gather journalists and others engaged in supporting the field to discuss how we measure the impact of journalism on a society. Has it influenced public opinion? Public policy? What are the indicators of impact? These are some of the questions we will seek to address at this meeting.
The Center for Learning in Practice will launch its K-12 Refugee Educators Foundations Course in New York, Arizona and Washington this Spring, in advance of hosting a Refugee Educator Academy workshop in Summer 2019. Launched in Spring 2017, the Academy strives to increase the number and accelerate the preparation of qualified refugee educators and service providers in the United States and around the world.
