People's State of The Union 2018

Every January, the President delivers a State of the Union address highlighting important issues from the past year and suggesting priorities for the coming year. It’s a broadcast from one to many. But democracy is a conversation, not a monologue. Understanding the state of our union takes We the People reflecting in our own communities on our challenges and opportunities locally, nationally, and globally. 

Since 2013, The Listening has been a platform for your voice, and we invite you to join us in this national conversation! If we're really out to "engage, change, and save lives with the performing arts", we've got to also be open to each other's stories - this is a wonderful place to start! Join us for a People's State of the Union Story Circle! 

This is a powerful way of coming together, getting to know one another, and reflecting on the state of our community, country, and world. No need to prepare anything. Just show up and be yourself! Learn more about our friends at the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture and the People's State of the Union here:
