The Exchange

Welcome to The Exchange, a meeting ground where we invite you to join the conversation.

Below you'll find a series of stories with a range of topics and tones. Some stories will look to provoke and stir, while others might provide a little respite, or even a laugh. Some will bring you behind the scenes, while others will offer a platform from which to discuss important issues in the public sphere. Once you've finished reading, you'll have the chance to record a response. It's that simple.

We want to hear from you and understand what's on your mind. So please join in.

And by the way, if you’d like to participate but aren’t comfortable recording a video response, join us on Twitter @mitmuseum.
