The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) has partnered with Facing History and Ourselves to develop a special poster set based on their national initiative Choosing to Participate. This poster exhibit, created primarily for middle and high schools, is designed to encourage dialogue, engagement, respect, and participation in our communities.
In an increasingly interconnected world, it’s more important than ever to inspire people of all ages to create positive social change. All are encouraged to consider the consequences of our everyday choices—to discover how “little things are big”—and to make a difference in their own communities.
These graphically compelling, full-color posters (11 in total) are produced by SITES and are being distributed through various partnerships, including the American Library Association and Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
