The Oregon Humanities Conversation Project:
Cerimon House welcomes these great conversations.

Oregon Humanities has added new programs to the 2018-19 Conversation Project catalog and we would like to invite you to join a practice Conversation Project program, right here at Cerimon House. How exciting is that: to be present and helpful in the first steps of a Conversation Project leader's journey giving form to their program?

Please help us welcome these two great Conversations,
and be with us for one or both.

August 15th @ 4:00pm BIAS AND KIDS
How do our prejudices affect our children?
- with conversation leaders Verónika Nuñez & Kyrié Kellett

August 15th @ 5:30pm SENTENCED FOR A SEASON, PUNISHED FIR LIFE
How Long should people pay for past crimes?
- with conversation leader Pamela Slaughter

No need to RSVP...just plan to join us then, and we'll greet you at Cerimon House.
5131 NE 23rd Ave. (one block north of Alberta St.) 
Bus-lines #8, #17, #72 within walking distance


(We're jazzed about this, and we hope you will join us. It's free.)

The Conversation Project brings Oregonians together to talk—across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds—about important issues and ideas, with the goal of connecting people to ideas and to each other, not to push an agenda or arrive at consensus. Oregon Humanities believes that conversation is a powerful medium to invite diverse perspectives, explore challenging questions, and strive for just communities. 

Before Conversation Project facilitators travel across the state to lead discussions on their topic, these practice programs are intended to give facilitators a chance to conduct their program with a group of people who participate in the conversation and give them feedback. A selection of Conversation Project practice programs will be held at Cerimon House in July & August.
