Community Conversation - Living with Uncertainty
September 20, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
We invite you to a community conversation about living with uncertainty. We'll be talking about the fatigue of continuing to live through a pandemic and how the ongoing uncertainty affects us. This is a time for conversation - ask questions, raise concerns, and talk together as a school community. To aid the conversation, space will be limited. (We know it's coming up soon, so if you miss it, don't fear! If there is a lot of interest in this topic, we can hold another session soon.) This event will be held via Zoom. The Zoom link will be sent out the day of the event.
About the format. A few students and faculty have decided to try something different - smaller community conversations. Our hope is that this can take topics that lend themselves better to verbal dialogue off of email and into a face-to-face (or screen-to-screen!) environment. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.
