What are Community Conversations?
Our Conversations program brings in films and speakers to build community dialogue. Our Conversation Circles program relies on relationships with local leaders to foster community-driven solutions and determine which of our programs best fit the needs and desires of local residents.
We continue to look for new ways to draw upon local wisdom and inspire and support grassroots initiatives for the good of the whole.
Here are some of the ways we have been a part of the conversation. Check out past offerings, and let us know if you are interested in working with us to host a talk or movie screening or engaging in dialogue within your community.
