Bring It to The Table returns to Dominican for encore

Bring It to The Table, a multi-media project that unites citizens around issues and across party lines, returned to Dominican October 13 as part of the University’s Democracy & Equity programming.

First screened on campus June 2 as part of Dominican’s College Debate 16, Bring It to The Table is a participatory online platform, a civic engagement campaign, a 40-minute documentary film, and a series of webisodes aimed at bridging political divides and elevating the national conversation.

In June, filmmaker Julie Winokur presented the documentary to College Debate 16 student delegates. Following the screening, Winokur led a series of Table Talks at which student delegates discussed pressing national issues, learned how to ask open questions and listen well to others, and reflected upon their own attitudes and behaviors.

On Thursday, October 13, as part of the Democracy and Equity Initiative at Dominican, Winokur talked about her work, held a series of Table Talks, and screened Bring it to the Table. The event, free and open to the public, was in Guzman Lecture Hall.

Bring It to The Table is a project of Talking Eyes Media, whose work has appeared in National Geographic, The New York Times Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and on Good Morning America, CNN, Discovery, MSNBC, and PBS stations nationwide.
