Conversations New York has long championed the Conversation Cafe model of community-based gatherings. This phoner coming up next Monday,12/19, at 1-2 pm EST, is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about this practice from two of the co-creators, Susan Partnow and Vicki Robin, and leading practitioners from across the country who host Cafés in their communities.
Conversation Cafés (CC) are open, hosted conversations held in public spaces – not just in cafés. The CC process is elegantly simple – it’s nimble, accessible, and easy enough to be used very quickly by many people. As a process that moves participants from “small talk to big conversation,” it can be used to help communities address national and local crises that call for the immediate, real dialogue which we need in so many ways today. The Call will include the basics of convening and hosting your own Conversation Cafe.
