Join Smithsonian and Affiliate colleagues October 31 – November 2, 2023! We will come together under our theme, Fostering Conversations on Questions that Matter, to hear from different and diverse perspectives and provide a platform for initiating important and often crucial conversations.
Considering an affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution? Core to our work is catalyzing public engagement, sparking curiosity and learning, and ultimately inspiring a deeper understanding of our world. Get to know Smithsonian Affiliations, what it means to be an engaged Affiliate, and the process for applying on our Learning Excursion pages.
At this watershed moment in American history, museums are finding a wide spectrum of ways to address injustice with their communities, and facilitate the difficult but essential dialogue that is necessary. Find resources from the Smithsonian and our Affiliates to help catalyze these conversations in your community.
