April 21 - April 23, 2023

Booking Closed

We are delighted to be partnering with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum for this event in New York City.

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum is the principal institution concerned with exploring 9/11, documenting its impact, and examining its continuing significance. Honouring those who were killed in the 2001 and 1993 attacks is at the heart of their mission.

Located at the World Trade Center in New York City, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum tells the story of 9/11 through media, narratives, and a collection of monumental and authentic artefacts, presenting visitors with personal stories of loss, recovery, and hope.
