Bentonville think tank Heartland Forward’s flagship event kicks off next week. The two-day Heartland Summit (May 11-12) is invitation-only, but organizers also plan two community events to bring the conversations to the broader public.
On May 11, the public is invited to a free screening and open discussion of the HBO documentary “Our Towns.” Directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmakers Steven Ascher and Jeanne Jordan, “Our Towns” reflects on the rise of civic and economic reinvention and how it transforms small cities and towns across the nation.
The event is at 3 p.m. at The Momentary in Bentonville. The screening is free with advance registration at this link.
On May 12, the public is invited to a concert featuring two-time Grammy award-winning string band Old Crow Medicine Show and country singer/songwriter Brittney Spencer. Read MORE.
