HUNTINGTON, Ind.— During her presentation at the Forester Lecture Series
on Nov. 8., Nicole Dreiske, executive director of the International Children’s Media Center, seeks to offer encouragement to those who are committed to their values but strive to succeed in a secular occupation.
The lecture will take place at 7 p.m. in the Zurcher Auditorium of the Merillat Centre for the Arts
at Huntington University.
Dreiske works for International Children’s Media Center, a non-profit cultural and educational organization dedicated to changing the way children view, use and engage media. She has extensive experience in the secular filmmaking industry, including long tenures as director of Facets Multi-Media, the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, the Dreiske Performance Company and Facets Performance Ensemble. She has spoken and written widely on the subject of media literacy and child development.
Her presentation titled, “Spirit vs. ‘The Spin’: Affirming Your Values in the Secular Workplace,” will focus on the challenges presented by celebrity and wealth-obsessed culture, and how to recognize a “life well lived” in one’s chosen vocation.
The Forester Lecture Series is designed to bring interesting individuals and topics to the attention of students and the regional community. The Forester Lecture Series is free and open to the public.
The Forester Lecture Series is coordinated by Dr. Jeff Webb, professor of history
at Huntington University. For more information, contact Webb at 260-359-4243.
