Enlightening Conversations that Will Explore Social and Political Topics that Affect Us Today

Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater will host additional community conversations as a part of the Arena Civil Dialogues series. The conversations seek to provide an opportunity for members of the Washington, D.C., community to engage in civil discourse about social and political issues, and will demonstrate — with the goal — that people of diverse viewpoints can have fruitful dialogues with one another. Each Arena Civil Dialogue will feature prominent Dialogue Starters, and will be curated and moderated by Amitai Etzioni, a University Professor at The George Washington University and author. The conversations will be dedicated to discussion among participants about topics related to current events.

Molly Smith Study | 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.

There will be a reception before each discussion, at 5 p.m. in the Lower Lobby. Registration is required but attendance is free and open to the public.
