Changemaking and Museums for Civic Learning

Category: Education & Interpretation

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. What must we do to make sure museums, historic sites and other cultural institutions are a part of these crucial conversations? Watch this dynamic conversation which explores these topics. This program took place as part of the EdComversation series, hosted by EdCom, a professional network of AAM.
