1. What We Hold: Objects & Memory: Bring an object that matters to you and that connects to Santa Fe. We want to record your story about it as a way to highlight the importance of objects to memory and story. We were inspired by the Portland Art Museum’s, Object Stories, and can’t wait to see and hear what our community values.
2. Let’s Have a Conversation: Participate in a fluid conversation about Santa Fe’s culture, sharing your perspective with others. This lively exchange will also be documented by video, photography and audio.
3. “What is Culture?” Wall: Leave your opinion about culture on our “What is Culture?” Wall. We can’t wait to read what you think!
4. Map It!: On our life-sized maps of Santa Fe, identify the places that reflect culture to you. As everyone leaves their mark, we’ll begin to literally see where Santa Feans believe culture lives!
