Facilitated Dialogue

Grades 6–12

Dialogues take place in the historic Residents’ Dining Hall, the space where Hull-House residents joined leading intellectuals and visionaries including Upton Sinclair, Ida B. Wells, W.E.B. Du Bois, Eleanor Roosevelt, and other important social reformers to share meals and ideas, debate one another, and conspire to change the world. These activities, led by trained museum educators, help to create a safe environment where a range of emotions and opinions can be shared in conversation. Facilitated Dialogue topics include immigration, social justice, labor, art, and home economics.
