ICON Programs

We strive to produce and promote fun, engaging, and enlightening types of programs throughout the year to connect local public historians with each other and with our city's diverse cultural organizations. We host education events like lunch and learns and behind-the-scenes tours, as well as social events like trivia night so you can meet new colleagues in the field.
