Community Engagement & Educational Outreach
Community Engagement and Educational Outreach is a key component that sets NET apart from its commercial television and radio counterparts. Community Engagement and Educational Outreach extends the impact of NET’s television and radio broadcasts by providing access to educational materials and collaborative activities. Efforts are always in partnership with other community organizations and are designed to connect viewers and listeners to statewide service resources, foster community participation, and raise awareness about issues affecting Nebraskans.

Indie Lens Pop-Up (formerly Coffee & Conversation)
We're proud to announce that Indie Lens Pop-Up's new location is the Ethel S. Abbott Auditorium in the Sheldon Museum of Art at 12th & R Streets in Lincoln.
Join us this fall for another exciting, FREE! season, filled with thought-provoking documentaries from November through June, one Sunday every month at 1PM*. Each film screening is followed by a community discussion.
Independent Lens has announced the launch of Indie Lens Pop-Up, a neighborhood screening series that brings people together for community-driven conversations around award-winning films. Formerly known as NET Coffee & Conversation, the long-running series has been renamed Indie Lens Pop-Up to strengthen the bond between the Independent Lens television series and local communities, and bring new energy and new audiences to the in-person events as well as online OVEE events and NET broadcasts. Nationally, over the past decade, screenings of Independent Lens films have brought more than 331,000 participants together at over 5,700 events to discuss issues that impact local communities.
The Indie Lens Pop-Up line-up includes a diverse selection of new documentaries that explore issues from race to gun violence, from veterans’ issues to autism. A powerful line-up of local speakers will facilitate the discussion. Indie Lens Pop-Up creates a warm, welcoming, and enjoyable space for people of all ages and backgrounds to come together in a time where these opportunities seem to be dwindling. We learn and grow together as a community through the conversations that follow each film.
*FREE films are shown the third Sunday every month.
