Community Documentary Night
Brought to you by Adam Hicks, founder and host of Community Documentary Night, based out of Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
The purpose of our events is to give people the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions on a wide range of topics with people from various backgrounds. Documentary Night in May will be available to New Zealanders who join up and is in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. This event is in collaboration with Plant Based Emory, a student-run organization at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. They act as a support for anyone who is vegan, vegetarian, or interested in learning more about a plant based lifestyle.
We are meeting to talk about the documentary, Milked. Chris Huriwai will be joining us during the event for a special guest Q&A!
The way this works is that everyone watches the film on their own prior to the event, then we meet on zoom to discuss. We break everyone out into randomized small groups of around 4 or 5 people, give them a discussion prompt, and give them about 20 minutes or so to discuss in their randomized groups.
We will do three rounds of small group discussion with different groups and different prompts. This gives everyone an opportunity to meet new people and hear a variety of voices and perspectives throughout the night. Then we will end the night with the special guest Q&A!
Again, the event is very flexible, so feel free to drop in late or leave early if that is what works best with your schedule. The zoom info will be available once you RSVP on the Eventbrite page.
