Some questions we're considering: How can museums connect the public to current issues facing their communities and the nation at large? How can museums open a gateway to more substantive, more productive civic dialogue? How can they serve as a place for visitors express their civic voice? We're at work on a project called Address America that enables the public to express their election priorities in the form of their ideal six-word stump speech. What programs and/or initiatives are you offering this election season?
