This event will be held in in the Peck Room (in the far back of Commons) at Yale Schwarzman Center, 168 Grove Street, New Haven, CT 06511. 

Free and open to the public. Seats are limited, so registrants will automatically be placed on the waitlist and will be notified via email if selected.


Public programs such as university museums can be incredible catalysts for change. What are the best ways for them to unleash their full potential, forge partnerships, and engage with the community? Join Molleen Theodore and Alice Matthews from the Yale University Art Gallery and MFA candidate Louise Mandumbwa from the Yale School of Art for a conversation on the responsibility of public programs and their role in society.

Yale Schwarzman Center Sessions are peer-led gatherings where conversations generate collaborations and move ideas into action. Because seats are limited, registrants will be automatically placed on the waitlist and will be notified via email if they are selected to participate.
