Be Inspired: Join Them on Their Next Conversation – Lancaster Cultural Arts Center Series

LANCASTER, SC (CN2 NEWS) – As we watch the war unfold between Russia and Ukraine – Ukraine’s president has said 20% of his country is now under Russian control – many of us might have questions lingering on what is happening thousands of miles away. .

The Lancaster Cultural Arts Center launches a year-round lecture series featuring university professors, business leaders and civic leaders who address a variety of topics.
The first conference was from Davidson College in North Carolina to share some ideas.

Dr. Amanda Ewington, professor of Russian studies at Davidson College, went to Russia in high school and became fascinated with the country. She explains the importance of following what is happening in Ukraine and what the future holds for all of us saying:
“To also think about what it means to love your country, instead of only loving your country if you don’t recognize the dark sides of your country. That’s what Putin wants to happen, okay, we’re not talking about all the things Russia did wrong. We’re going to have this glorious, beautiful story of affirmation. So I think for people closer to home, that might be a message to think about, right. We can see when we look at Russia that this is not a good way to approach understanding your own country. So maybe we can bring that a bit home.

The next Lancaster Cultural Arts Center Conversation will take place on July 6 – it’s always the first Wednesday of every month.

July’s topic will be Leroy Springs and the development of Lancaster.
