Book Your Discussion Circle Today!

NOTE: Due to the popularity of the RACE exhibit, Discussion Circles will be held through June 21.

Businesses, church groups and other small groups in the community are invited to use the Putnam's newest exhibit — RACE: Are We So Different? — as springboard to conversation and deeper understanding of equity and inclusion with Discussion Circles.

Discussion Circles are facilitated discussions in which all participants are invited to reflect on their experiences in learning about and experiencing race as a factor in their lives and communities. A community facilitator will keep the conversation positive and productive, which may lead to actionable results the group may administer on its own.
Two-hour sessions include exhibit admission and are available to small groups of 6 to 15 people now through June 21For just $50 plus museum admission ($9 per adult, $8 for youth, seniors, college students and military), your group may book a Discussion Circle. Time slots are available Monday through Friday from 8 to 10 a.m.; 11 a.m. to 1 p.m or 3 to 5 p.m., or Saturday and Sunday, from 1 to 3 p.m.
