Democracy Conversations (featuring the UMMA Dialogue Deck)

University of Michigan Museum of Art

Register for October 13th: http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=uhlrs88ab&oeidk=a07ehcay0gjdcc701ce.

In advance of the Presidential election, UMMA and U-M's Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning created the “Dialogue Deck for Personal and Political Reflection." The Dialogue Deck pairs twelve images from UMMA’s permanent collection with provocative discussion prompts designed to encourage conversation and reflection about US culture and politics. The Dialogue Deck activity is meant to encourage meaningful dialogue and connection with your family, friends, colleagues, and maybe even yourself.

During the month of October, UMMA will host three "Democracy Conversations" via Zoom that feature the Dialogue Deck activity. Participants will be sorted into small breakout groups of 4-5 people and paired with a host who will gently guide the activity and conversation.  Conversations will last one hour, and offer the opportunity for individuals to learn more about the Dialogue Deck activity and engage in conversation with others outside their immediate social circles. 

The Dialogue Deck can be used by anyone as a self-guided discussion tool, and the print version of the deck is available for free at the UMMA Shop.

UMMA's Vote2020 initiative is presented in connection with the U-M Democracy & Debate theme semester. Thanks to our partners at the Penny Stamps School of Art & Design, the Ginsberg Center for Community Service & Learning, the Ann Arbor City Clerk's Office, and the Center for World Performance Studies.
