The Alverno Community Conference, an annual day of learning that provides an opportunity for the extended Alverno community to share current research around a central theme, will be held on Friday, October 4, from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. The event is open to the public and, this year, will explore the theme: The Art of Happiness. Registrants can choose from 28 topics – all connected to happiness – during three concurrent sessions.
New to this year’s event is the addition of Dr. Parker Palmer as the keynote speaker; Palmer will share his insight on happiness during the lunch hour. Author of several best-selling books, including Healing the Heart of Democracy, Palmer is a world-renowned author, speaker and activist who remains committed to issues that pertain to education, leadership and social change.
Registrants are also invited to participate in a “Happy Hour” of music-making and hands-on art activities set to take place in the afternoon from 1:30 – 5:30 p.m. Among the many Happy Hour events is an event that benefits The Empty Bowls Project. Participants work with Alverno’s Art faculty to create a hand-crafted bowl that will be used for a Milwaukee-area fundraiser to end local hunger.
