Upcoming Speakers

Upcoming Speakers

To be of service and relevance to the Santa Fe community, CIR regularly hosts panel discussions, presentations, dialogues, and luncheons on pressing issues. We also regularly have dinner-and-a-movie events, photo presentations, and film screenings to help us better understand the beauty and mystery of the world – and of far-off cultures.

Our speaker program is one of our flagship programs. We bring to the CIR stage former ambassadors, journalists, academics, students, photographers, and activists – all of whom help advance our understandings of how to be a responsible global citizen.
