AGHI partners with Great Talk Inc. to create a platform for meaningful conversations for a public audience. Since 2017, Great Talks have offered—in their words—a forum for Conversations with a Purpose, “enriching and providing interdisciplinary learning and intellectual engagement for the Greater Baltimore and Maryland communities by bringing people together to share live, accessible and interactive conversations featuring distinguished speakers that address relevant issues including the arts, culture, the humanities, science, social concern and other areas at a wide range of venues in Maryland.”
Learn more about Great Talks, including past speakers and events, plus how to get involved for future occasions, at their website.
