Civic learning is about nurturing our shared civic imagination and restoring our community fabric—endeavors that are more important than ever. We believe that museums have everything to offer and a great deal to learn as part of this renewal. The speakers on this panel believe that all museums can play essential roles in ensuring learners of all ages feel included and become active changemakers who will help maintain and strengthen our democratic aspirations. What must we do to make sure museums, historic sites and other cultural institutions are a part of these crucial conversations? Join us for a dynamic conversation that we believe is just a starting place for further collaboration.
