Space to Talk About Race

Participate in a Community Dialogue (intergenerational - 12 years and above).

The Museum of Tolerance is committed to supporting critical conversations that generate understanding and promote justice. The need for dialogue and change continues as incidents of hate persist online and in our streets. Dialogue is a key feature of all MOT programs.

In 2014 following the unrest in Ferguson, MO, the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience launched a national initiative for museums to host dialogues on race, education, incarceration, and civil rights in their communities. The Museum of Tolerance is a member of this network and created _SpaceToTalkAboutRace as an opportunity for the greater LA community to come together. There are many kinds of dialogue experiences. This one is a solutions-oriented space where dialogue encourages taking action.

Participants are guided by an experienced facilitator to examine challenging issues, share their own experiences and perspectives, and learn from each other to find new ways forward. A Typical Full-day Format:

  • Custom Museum Tour & Lunch
  • 90 min. Facilitated Dialogue: Mindfulness, agreements, gallery walk, dialogue circle, commitments and gratitude
  • 90 min. Arts based workshop: Reflection and envisioning with Self Help Graphics and Spoken Word Artist and Teacher GusTavo Guerra Vasquez (Read one of his poems here!)
  •
