Context & Connections: The Durham Green Flea Market
Contexts and Connections is a signature program of Duke Service-Learning, engaging Duke faculty and staff interested in deepening their knowledge of and connections to the Durham community, as well as exploring connections with teaching, research, and service. Contexts and Connects is about getting faculty and staff off campus, introducing folks to Durham's rich history, and facilitating introductions to community resources for service-learning and community-engaged (SLCE) courses.
This Spring 2023 we are offering three events over the course of the semester to highlight contexts and create connections for SLCE faculty and staff. As we aspire to get Beyond the Discourse, Contexts and Connections invites us to leave our university echo chamber centered on words and learn from communities about possibilities for action. Please join us for one or more of these events:
The Durham Green Flea Market. Have you ever visited the Durham Green Flea Market? Operating for over 10 years, it draws a diverse segment of our community. Join Prof. Bethzaida Fernández on March 25, 11am-1pm for a stroll through the market and conversation about our Latinx community in Durham as we meet some Latinx vendors and sample foods. A second conversation will take place on campus March 28, 1:45-2:45pm with the objective to learn more about our local Latinx communities. You may sign up for one or both conversations (it is not required to participate in both).
