Since 2003, the Montreal-based University of the Streets Café has used the ‘public conversation’ to promote lifelong learning and community engagement. With the support of Concordia University's School of Extended Learning and Institute for Community Development, these collective discussions allow individuals of diverse backgrounds and socio-economic realities to meet and think together on important social issues, current affairs and topics of general interest. Organizing an engaging public conversation requires careful attention to content, process and logistics. In this workshop, we explore the methodology and practical steps behind public conversations to better understand learning in community.
