Civic Conversations

Civic Conversations is a series of talks at The Robert McLaughlin Gallery that asks: What are we willing to risk to protect, strengthen, and nourish our world and each other? We invite artists and activists from various disciplines to guide us towards provocative, living questions that challenge us to converse honestly about what is at stake in the way we relate to ourselves, each other, and the place in which we live.

In partnership with community organizations and food vendors, we invite everyone in our community to gather, eat, and participate in Civic Conversations with us. Each conversation is formatted to suit the topic, but may include: panels, lectures, small group discussions, and walk + talks.
