This year’s Consider This series explores questions about power. How does power show up in our communities? Who holds power, and what form does it take? Is power shared by many groups of people or concentrated among a few? How do groups gain or lose power? How does power shape our relationships with our neighbors, our colleagues, and people we interact with in digital spaces? How does it show up in our physical environments and other parts of the places where we live? Join us from September 2022 through summer 2023 for a series of in-person and online conversations on people, place, and power.
