The mission of the Skirball Cultural Center is to explore the connections between Jewish heritage and the vitality of American democratic ideals. Skirball presents the experience of the Jewish people — their traditions, aspirations and values — as a metaphor for the experience of all immigrant groups that journey to the U.S. We seek to welcome and inspire people of every ethnic and cultural identity in American life. Guided by our respective memories and experiences, together we aim to build a society in which all of us can feel at home. Skirball achieves its mission through the display and interpretation of the museum’s permanent collection and changing exhibitions; scholarship and publications; outreach to the community; a nationally-recognized school outreach program; and public programs for adults and families that explore literary, visual and performing arts from around the world.

Skirball presents performances, concerts, lectures, media programs, conversations and other events that illuminate our mission. We debut work from groundbreaking national and international artists and thinkers who engage, challenge and inspire. Our presentations are frequently linked to topics that are associated with our museum exhibitions or other themes which Skirball examines in response to our mission. Submissions may be sent by mail or by email to programs@
