FARMINGTON — Mt. Blue High School students have created Artful Responses, an arts and literature community action and empathy project that will culminate with a community potluck and discussion from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, June 13, at the Mt. Blue Campus food court.

The public is invited and asked to bring ideas and food to share.

Students in Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition classes came up with the project after wondering aloud, “How might literature help us solve problems in our community?”

Students identified six questions: three their collective readings raised and three they believed applied to the greater community. They are asking those questions of both the high school and community, and will compile the answers for sharing and discussion.

Polling stations are located at Narrow Gauge Cinemas, Devaney, Doak & Garrett Booksellers, and Franklin Savings Bank, all in downtown Farmington.

The surveys, as well as the students’ musical, artistic and analytical responses to the questions, may also be completed by visiting
