NEXT WEEK, SITE Santa Fe’s Innovative Thinker Summer Speaker Series will bring together accomplished, cross-disciplinary thinkers to discuss thought-provoking, relevant, and complex cultural issues.

In 2022, SITE Santa Fe is thrilled to host two public conversations: one on interpersonal connection in the pandemic era with Priya Parker and Wendy Woon, and the other on the vast income inequity in the art and nonprofit worlds with Anand Giridharadas and Amy Whitaker. These events will not be filmed, so get tickets to make sure you can participate in-person!
