    Explore the role that museums, libraries, and archives hold in strengthening civil society.

    Join Johns Hopkins University for a live fireside chat with the visionary thought leaders of our nation's great public institutions- Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution Lonnie G. Bunch III, Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden, and Archivist of the United States Colleen Shogan - in a conversation moderated by Christopher Celenza, the James B. Knapp Dean of Johns Hopkins University's Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.

    Museums, libraries, and archives contain and safeguard our shared heritage, provide safe spaces for engagement and conversation, and activate the past and present for the future. As cornerstones of democracy, they hold the promise of strengthening civil society.

    The missions of these critical democratic institutions provide an opportunity to imagine our way forward into a democracy that brings more promise for all.

    This event is hosted by the Johns Hopkins MA in Museum Studies and MA in Cultural Heritage Management programs in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution.

    This is also an opportunity to see the new Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg Center, the former site of the Newseum.
