WILLMAR — A series of community conversations on culture will be led Wednesday in Willmar by writer and activist Paul Kivel.

The public will have three opportunities to participate during the day: 8:30 to 10 a.m. at the Willmar Community Center, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Ridgewater College and 6 to 8 p.m. at the Willmar Education and Arts Center.

Individuals who are curious about the different cultures in Willmar and want to learn how to come together to make the community healthier for all are encouraged to attend.

Kivel's work is rooted in the question of how people can live and work together to sustain community, nurture the individual and create a multicultural society based on love, caring, justice and interdependence.

The event is co-hosted by Healthy Together Willmar, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, Ridgewater College and Willmar Community Education and Recreation.
