Afternoon of Conversation

Our signature event, the 2016 Afternoon of Conversation hosts an audience of more than 2,000 in the Benedict Music Tent. From criminal justice for the most vulnerable, to space exploration, to the changing Supreme Court, to artificial intelligence, and the state of the Grand Old Party, big thinkers and doers engage in serious ideas about their work and our collective future.
