Screening of “The Pursuit” at UNE Portland Campus
June 27, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Maine Policy is proud to partner with the University of New England’s Center for Global Humanities to bring “The Pursuit” to Maine. The screening will take place in the WCHP lecture hall in the Parker Pavilion at the UNE Portland campus on Stevens Avenue.
How can we lift up the world, starting with those at the margins of society?
In “The Pursuit,” professional musician turned intrepid economist Arthur Brooks travels around the globe in search of an answer to this question.
His journey takes him through the chaotic streets of Mumbai, a town in Kentucky left behind by the global economy, a homeless shelter in New York, a street protest in Barcelona, and a Himalayan Buddhist monastery. Along the way, he discovers the secrets not only to material progress for the least fortunate, but also true and lasting happiness for all.
This event is free and open to the public.
