JANM presents a four-week series of public conversations taking place within our core exhibition, Common Ground: The Heart of Community. Each conversation, which will be facilitated by a member of our education staff and follow a guiding theme, is intended to generate meaningful dialogue among guests, utilizing Japanese American history to delve into contemporary issues and concerns. Portions of the exhibition will serve as jumping-off points for each conversation.

All are welcome to attend and no tickets or RSVPs are required. Common Ground Conversations are free and coincide with JANM’s free admission on Thursdays starting at 5 p.m.
