If museums aim to inspire active citizen participation in social issues, we need modes of exchange that build new understanding through the exchange of visitor perspectives. This session provides an introduction to the Arc of Dialogue model, an interpretive framework designed to address critical contemporary issues by building conversation gradually from personal experience to common experience, then to larger systemic issues, in order to foster stronger connections between visitors and sites.
