Community Conversations

New Narratives
Carry Us Forward

Community Conversations are your opportunity to join us for fun, challenging, fascinating events that help build thoughtful, literate, and engaged Minnesotans. How do we amplify and recognize authentic narratives of traditionally under-represented people? How do we engage in civil discourse about what unites us, not divides us? How do we feel inspired and energized by our shared humanity? We feel that Community Conversations and the humanities are a place to start.
