Revisiting Dialogue Nights

One of the Ikeda Center's best instances of turning lemons into lemonade during this pandemic year—best acts of value creation, if you will—has been how our program staff has successfully translated our in-person dialogue events into online "virtual dialogues." It's thrilling to be online together with participants from all around the world, dialed in and eager to explore creative ways of building diverse peace cultures. Still, it's hard not to be nostalgic for the unique experience of in-person dialogue, especially as it developed through our Dialogue Nights series over the last three years. Launched in the fall of 2017, Dialogue Nights brings together university students and young professionals for dialogue on topics of immediate relevancy, such as being authentic, the loneliness epidemic, and breaking gender stereotypes. Will Dialogue Nights re-emerge in 2021? We can only hope. Until then, we invite you to visit our Dialogue Nights page, where you can link to stories that bring some of that Dialogue Nights energy to life. [posted by M. Bogen: 12-9-20]
