On Sunday April 12 from 3-5 PM at the Big Picture Theater in Waitsfield, Green Mountain Global Forum will host Vermont Folk Life Center's Ned Castle, Harwood teacher Steve Rand, and students who have just returned from the Rwanda Student Travel Study Program. The group will discuss Rwandan history and recovery through stories, photography, and media projects.

The afternoon will help to frame our understanding of the local-global connection between Rwanda and Vermont.  We will learn what our students do there, how they contribute to the Rwandan communities they visit, and what they take away from their experience. In addition, the evening aims to address the issue of genocide as it pertains to Rwanda as well as raise questions about other areas of the world where mass violence looms or exists.
