Learning Format: Passive Learning

What is a cultural institution’s obligation and opportunity to understand the complexities of the people and places that surround it? By employing a variety of methods, including traditional data compilation and research as well as community organizing approaches such as reciprocal relationships building and old-fashioned door knocking, learn how we are understanding our neighborhood and our neighborhood is understanding us. Come for an engaged discussion where we ask tough questions and share examples of works-in-progress.
