What are Listening Tours?
Listening Tours are a way for education at the Kennedy Center to engage with the community in the DC metro area. Kennedy Center education staff will share plans for the future and open up the discussion to get your feedback.

Do I need to be able attend all of the events?
No. Choose the time and place that is most convenient for you. If you’d like to attend more than one, you are also welcome.

How do I RSVP for the Listening Tour I want to attend?
Registration has closed for this round of Listening Tours, but stay tuned for others opportunities to share your thoughts on the future of Education at the Kennedy Center.

Who can attend a Listening Tour?
All are invited and welcome! Educators, parents, youth, artists, patrons of the arts, and anyone interested or curious to learn more and have a voice in what education at the Kennedy Center can look like! We hope to hear from a wide array of voices, interests, and opinions.
