“Building community through conversation.”
Fall 2013 Dialogue Series:
This I Believe: A Zeidler Center Dialogue Series on Personal Values and Civic Ideals
“When people share personal stories, their uniqueness and complexity emerge. Personal exchanges diminish stereotyping and promote caring.”
We are hosting a series of structured and facilitated dialogues which bring together people of very different beliefs and backgrounds in an atmosphere of safety and inclusiveness, in order to increase mutual understanding about the core values that guide our lives. The goal is not to reach agreement, but rather to begin the much more difficult task of developing sensitivity to beliefs different from our own. All dialogues are free to attend, however space is limited.
Tuesday, October 29: “Purpose and Passion,” 5:30-8:30pm at Bucketworks, currently located at 161 W. Wisconsin Ave. in the Grand Avenue Mall (2nd floor, above TJ Maxx). A light meal will be provided.
Friday, November 22: “Beyond the Band-aid”: A Deep Conversation about Poverty in Milwaukee. More info here.
