Cultural Capital: The Big Quiet

A Mass Mediation Experience

Meditate with us! 

The Big Quiet returns to D.C. for a mass meditation experience at NMWA. Designed for people with any level of meditation experience, The Big Quiet will take you through a series of breathing exercises, crowd-powered vocal toning, a mass sound meditation, special guest musical performances and break-out conversations to get to know the D.C. community. Come early to browse NMWA’s galleries and exhibitions, then breathe deeply and slow down for this special event in the museum’s iconic Great Hall.

All attendees will be gifted an exclusive take-home Tuft & Needle meditation cushion, kombucha from GT’s Kombucha, and antioxidant water from smartwater.

A portion of each ticket sale will support two of The Big Quiet's giveback partners: Kula for Karma in bringing therapeutic meditation to people suffering from trauma, addiction, and adverse life circumstances; and Chooose in fighting climate change by reducing the carbon footprint of the event.


SOLD OUT. Very limited number of standby seats may be available on the day of the program, no guaranteed entry.

This Cultural Capital program partnership is presented by the museum’s Women, Arts, and Social Change initiative in collaboration with The Big Quiet.
