The 2018 Civic Institute is shaping up to be another incredible event, and this year we're putting the spotlight on our amazing community parners. The theme of this year's Civic Institute is Be Together Differently, and all of our workshops are dedicated to exploring variations on this theme. Workshops will be interactive, and engage participants on myriad topics including public life and collective memory, political polarization, digital storytelling, youth disengagement, and the role of faith in civic life--all with an eye toward reimagining public life for our time.
