The Ivy Tech Storytelling Series: On Work

07:00 pm to 08:00 pm
Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center, 122 S Walnut Street, Bloomington, IN 47402

Join us to hear true stories, told by local people, about issues of importance to the Bloomington community. “The Ivy Tech Storytelling Series: On Work,” is the fourth and final installment of the year.

Work is something that no Hoosier is a stranger to. We have also, over the past century, enjoyed a broad range of disciplines when it comes to work. Indiana has been home to factory jobs, coal mining, and farming, in addition to many trades, jobs in the medical field, in education, and many more. Whatever Hoosiers do, we put our backs into it, and the culture and tradition of being hardworking is one that is still being passed down. Indiana has seen a huge amount of job loss since factories shut their doors, and since the rise of clean energy and care for our planet shut down many coal mines across the country. This has caused many problems for many cities and towns that used to create the backbone of this state. So, as we look to the future and wonder what kind of work it will bring, we tell stories of what Work has meant in our lives.

Stories that will be told for the “Ivy Tech Storytelling Series: On Work,” include:

– Lindsay talks about why, at 29 years old, she’s still waiting tables, and how interactions with customers throughout the years have shaped her.

– As an OGYN, delivering babies was Ivy Lee Nehamkin’s job. Years later, she transitioned into Palliative Care, a new medical discipline that helps people with terminal illnesses face their death with all options presented. Dr. Lee talks about how her transition from birth medicine to palliative care changed her, about the magic and privilege in what she does for a living, and about the changes this new medical discipline has made to the entire medical field.

– Melinda Seader interviews her husband Donald Seader about his work as a business owner and auto mechanic, specializing in European and Japanese vehicles. Don talks about his journey to becoming a mechanic and shop owner, and about the harmful stereotypes that keep young people from seeing the value in trades jobs. Melinda and Don are co-owners of World Wide Automotive Service in Bloomington.

– A 95-year-old coal miner from Greene County talks with his grand-niece about a time in their hometown, Coal City, IN, when the coal business was booming and the whole family worked in the mines. The two also talk about how the closing of the town’s coal mines has had a disastrous effect on its economy, leaving the town looking like a ghost of its former self.

– Amy Briar, a highly skilled and internationally trained stone-carver, President of the Indiana Limestone Sculpture Symposium, and an Ivy Tech professor, talks about the joy of carving and her relationship to Southern Indiana Limestone.

– Yael Ksander, long-time Arts Desk producer for WFIU and current Communications Director for the City of Bloomington, talks about her work as a journalist and what it’s like to be a woman, as well as a mother, in the work place.

Tickets are $10 general admission and $5 for students and seniors (62+), and can be purchased via the Buskirk Chumley Theater (BCT) Box Office.
