When: May 16th & 17th, 2015

Where: The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center at One Woodrow Wilson Plaza – 1300 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20004-3027 (Google Map) (38.893387, -77.030146).  A photo I.D. is required for entry. You will be screened as this is a federal building.

Public Transit:

By Metro: Take the blue, orange or silver line to “Federal Triangle” station. At the top of the escalator at street level, cross Woodrow Wilson Plaza (just past the giant bronze turkey leg-exclamation point-beaver tail) The entrance is in the center of the Ronald Reagan Building. Once through security, head to your left to the south east corner.

From Pennsylvania Avenue at 13th Street: Walk down Woodrow Wilson Plaza, the north-south extension of 13th Street beside the Ronald Reagan Building. Enter the Reagan Building through the entrance in the middle of the plaza.

From 14th Street: Go through the Ronald Reagan Building along the right (south) side of the atrium and continue past it. At the hall’s end, turn left and enter the Woodrow Wilson Memorial. At its far end, turn right into the Center’s lobby.

Parking: Underground public parking is available underneath the Reagan Building at Pennsylvania Avenue and 13 1/2 Street. Take the elevator up to the ground floor and follow signs to the Woodrow Wilson Center. Because the Reagan Building is a federal building, all vehicle occupants must have photo identification and the vehicle will be subject to a 100% inspection.


Attendees 21+ are invited to sleepover Saturday (although the hope is to hack through the night!). The Wilson Center floor is not soft, so you will definitely want a pad to put beneath your sleeping bag. And please, no tents.
