ArtsConnect - Sunday, October 21 at 2:00 p.m.

ArtsConnect uses a variety of creative art forms (music, visual, literary arts etc.) to deepen our connections with each other, with the greater Rockville area, and nearby Beltway communities. There are three different ArtsConnect events held at UUCR throughout the year (October/January/March), with each event lifting up a different social justice theme. Each family-friendly event features a special guest musician or musical group as well as the work of poets  and artists of all ages.

Socrates Café Rockville meets in Building 1 on the fourth Saturday of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.


Open to the public and in a coffeehouse-style atmosphere, Socrates Café Rockville is a philosophic discussion in a small to mid-sized group (6 to 10 people), conducted loosely in the style of Plato's Socratic dialogues. Participants themselves generate the questions to be discussed each time and can expect to leave with a clearer understanding of others' positions, as well as their own, on questions of significant moral or ethical import.


There is no cost to attend and no sign up required. Come when you can. Bring a friend. Contact Jon Landenburger to learn more.
