The Dialogue Experience

DIALOGUES aim to contrast ordinary conversations, in following ways:

GOALS: People intentionally come together to gain understanding of views that are different from their own.

PROCESS: The communication will be more structured than usual, in order to support going beyond divisions.

VALUES:  The interaction is a two-way process that carefully balances Active Listening and Intentional Speaking.

AGREEMENTS: Participants jointly create

communication norms that foster a constructive exchange.

ATMOSPHERE: The conversation is shaped by respect in which real questions are asked and mutual learning can occur.

"Dialogue cannot exist without humility."

Paulo Freire
