On this page, we have clustered the wide variety of events and activities associated with the theme year under three themes or pathways: Arts and the Civic Imagination, Citizenship at Issue, and Citizens in Action. The first pathway includes events in which musicians, writers, actors, and other artists explore and reflect on the practice of citizenship in the arts. Citizenship at Issue includes lectures, panels, and conferences that explore, from various disciplinary and experiential perspectives, the ways traditional notions of citizenship are being challenged and transformed, expanded or put at risk around the world. Citizens in Action highlights speakers and events that put ideas into action in the public sphere, including volunteer and community learning opportunities, as well as career paths in public service and social justice.
