Cultural Conversations

  • Saturday, April 22, 2017
  • 2:00pm - 3:30pm

A Cultural Conversation is an enlightening exchange of thoughts, opinions and ideas about race in a safe space. For 90 minutes, friends, families and strangers can participate in a dialogue facilitated by local experts in the field of race relations and social justice. This exercise allows for people in small groups (5 to 25 people) to have a meaningful and transformative experience as they reflect on their everyday life experiences with race.

Cultural Conversations will occur during the run of the RACE: Are We So Different? featured exhibition every Saturday and Sunday afternoon from April 22 to September 3. These conversations are free and open to the public, ages six and up. Children ages 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Participants must be available for the entire 90-minute session. All participants are encouraged to spend a minimum of one hour in the exhibition prior to their Conversation, as some conversational prompts are tied to exhibition content. Space is limited. Registration is required. If you must cancel your reservation, please notify the Museum Box Office at 919.707.9950 at least 24 hours in advance.

Walk-ins will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis. Check in at the Museum Box Office to see if there are any openings on the day of your visit.

To register a group, please contact the Museum Box Office at 919.707.9950. To request an accommodation, such as a Spanish-speaking facilitator, or for more information, please contact Yemi Adewuyi at yemi@ajf.org.
