Tuesday evening Indiana Humanities is bringing groups across the state together over dinner for a discussion on ‘what divides us.’

The ‘Chew on This’ program from Indiana Humanities is a semi-annual dinner when community members are invited to share a meal over a topic of conversation.

A new two-year initiative by the group, called IN-seperable, is meant to explore how Hoosiers relate across dividing lines.

Leah Nahmias is the director of programs and community engagement at Indiana Humanities.

“Let’s get people together and make a meal together and then talk about what we have in common and what divides us and try to get to understand people.”

Nahmias said facilitators will be at each site to help keep the conversation going.

The dinners are taking place Tuesday evening at restaurants across the state including in South Bend and Warsaw.
