Cliveden Conversations & Kitchen Conversations

talkThe award winning public speaking forum at Cliveden’s Carriage House brings regional and national guest speakers, poets, educators, and historians to ignite conversation in our diverse community for an intellectual and often emotional discussion on race, history, and memory in Philadelphia.

Beginning in 2015 with support from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage for the Living Kitchens at Cliveden planning process, the Cliveden Conversations expanded to include the Kitchen Conversations, which include a light meal related to the topic prepared by local chefs or restaurants.

Cliveden Conversations are free and open to the public. Reservations are encouraged and appreciated but not required. Donations are accepted.

For Kitchen Conversations, reservations  are required.
