Register for the Schwartz Forum: “How Can We Know?”

Saturday, October 21, 2017

Back to Dorothy Schwartz Forum

Maine Charitable Mechanics Association Hall
519 Congress Street, Portland
10:30 am - 4:30 pm
Doors open at 10:00 am

Each fall at the Schwartz Forum we bring people together to wrestle with a big idea. Each time, we invite leaders from a range of relevant fields and devise a schedule for the day that is particularly appropriate to the topic at hand.

The living question at the heart of the 2017 Forum invites active participation: this year’s leaders will be engaging us in a series of explorations of aspects of the question “How can we know?”

We’ll start with an hour of Doubt.
Devote the middle of the day to Curiosity.
And close with an hour of Trust.

(and there will be cake, too!)
