World Cafe is an innovative “group-sourcing” practice, enabling successive small groups to focus on aspects of a particular problem or issue. A topic is broken into sub-questions, each addressed at one table in the “café”; after a set period of small-group conversation, participants move to a different table, where each moderator summarizes the previous conversation and opens a new discussion. Through multiple rounds, each component part of an issue is thoroughly aired—and each participant has an opportunity to address different questions.

Moderators and participants from World Café Session 2 regroup for a “report out.” Moderators present the results of the workshops followed by a lively discussion amongst all the participants.

Tickets can be purchased here or in person at New Museum visitors desk during museum hours. The museum is open Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Thursday 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
