The 2024 Monument Lab Summit from July 18-19 in Philadelphia, PA will bring together thought leaders influencing and innovating the monument landscape through groundbreaking forms of commemoration, acknowledgment, justice, and belonging. Around the theme of “Past is Presence,” Monument Lab will gather the monument changemaking community to elevate the power of coalitional public memory and art. At the Summit, we will convene artists, curators, grassroots organizers, federal officials, municipal and civic workers, educators, students, and more from around the country for keynote presentations, panels, workshops, and field trips.
Advanced registration begins in mid-February. To stay connected for announcements for the Monument Lab Summit, sign up for our mailing list here.
Major support for the Monument Lab Summit is provided by the Mellon Foundation.
