Journalists from around the globe will arrive in Grand Marais at the end of March and take part in a public forum on journalism at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts. The public roundtable discussion is set for Tuesday, March 29 at 7 pm and will feature a question-and-answer session with the 9 visiting journalists. Moderating the event will be Marja Erickson, board president of the Cook County Historical Society.
The 2022 WPI fellowship program has journalists from Argentina, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, China (Hong Kong), Finland, Germany, India, Iran, and Nigeria. Participants are making Grand Marais a stop on their three-week MN tour before heading out on a five-week tour of the United States. While the journalists get a taste of rural America during their stop in Grand Marais, the event gives area residents and visitors a chance to gather insight and perspective from journalists from around the world.
