The Makers: Reykjavik is a series of free public forums designed to educate about the Cold War and the threat still posed by its legacy of nuclear weapons. It brings together artists in discussion with the diplomats, policymakers, and scientists who have shaped the history of the Cold War and nuclear policy. The initial program was held at the Carnegie Institution for Science. The next forum will take place online in September with decision-makers from government, science, and civil society looking at the threat still posed by nuclear proliferation.
