What makes a great America?

Who decides what makes America great? What are the alternate views of what makes a great America, at home and in a global sense? Can America still call itself a global leader?

You are invited to participate in a new series of civil dialogues, launched by Arena Stage.

These dialogues seek to provide an opportunity for members of the Washington, DC metropolitan community to engage in discourse about major current issues. They also seek to demonstrate that people of very diverse viewpoints can have fruitful dialogues with one another. We hence assume that all participants have consented to heed the rules of civil dialogue, such as not attributing motives, not demonizing the other side, and showing that they truly listen to the other. There will be a few dialogue starters but most of the time will be dedicated to give and take among the participants. The dialogues will be moderated by Amitai Etzioni.

Located in the Molly Smith Study
at Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater
from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.


There will be a pre-dialogue reception before each event, starting at 5:00 p.m. Because of space limitations, registration is required but attendance is free and open to the public.
