Reel Issues: "Trash Talk"

WCTI is excited to announce a new partnership effort with member company Action! by Design for 2019! Each quarter, we will be tackling themed issues and opportunities related to our Worcester community through events and community engagement experiences.

Our first event will be a documentary screening night at WCTI on Thursday, January 10 at 6pm. Our first theme cycle? Trash Talk. During Trash Talk, we tackle issues around waste and recycling to start conversations that get members of the community thinking and inspired to take action in realizing impact-driven growth and change.

This is a problem, that many of us, Worcester residents, can relate to.

Reel Issues is a community screening series we will be hosting quarterly. These events will bring people together to view documentaries, films, and art pieces that aim to educate the greater Worcester community on issues that impact our lives and encourage conversations that lead to action.

This free event is BYOB! 

Event Information:

Date: Thursday, January 10th

Time: 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Location: Worcester CleanTech Incubator44 Portland St., 4th Floor
