An series of evening events celebrating community engagement and providing entertainment, while asking attendees to consider local issues via five-minute mixed-media presentations. Presenters have twenty-one slides auto-advancing every 20 seconds to examine any situation that brought insight into their personal or professional lives, or to the world at large.

2017 Insight programs were held in Cheyenne, Casper, and Laramie, WY. Over the course of three months, the events explored topics of legends, identity, and indomitable snowpeople. More importantly, audiences met legends, forged a new identity, and challenged some of the indomitable Wyomingites around. These programs would not have been possible without the speakers found in the videos, but it was made possible through a generous partnership with the University of Wyoming’s Creative Writing MFA program and our series sponsor’s Wyoming Public Media and Radio and the Fredrick and Patricia Supper Foundation and Cynthia Chace Gray.
