The Long Conversation

What do award-winning actor Alfre Woodard, March for Our Lives activists, drag queen Sasha Velour, NASA’s head of the mission to Jupiter, and one of the world’s leading cancer surgeons have in common? They all know something that makes them hopeful for the future. Come find out what at this one-of-a-kind event in one of the most beautiful buildings on the National Mall.

A magical setting: Come for the inspiration, stay for the surprise performances, mind-bending art installs from Julia Buntaine, Phaan Howng, McCormack and Figg, and Gabriel Mellan, and the rare chance to explore the soaring halls of the Arts & Industries Building, America’s first national museum. Food and drink: Don’t miss the locally-sourced gourmet menu from James Beard Award winner Spike Gjerde of Rake’s Progress at the Line Hotel and drinks from DC’s small-batch, women-owned distillery Republic Restoratives.

Free and open to all: Tickets are free, but seating is limited to preserve the intimate atmosphere.
