Theatre and Conflict Resolution Speaker Event
October 4th, 4:30-6:00 at KPMG (4th floor, 777 Dunsmuir)
Join us October 4th for a lively discussion of the ways in which theatre can contribute to our understanding of conflict resolution, and might even increase our skills! Mediator/Fringe performer Ashley Syer and mediator/Fringe Board member Sharon Sutherland will lead the discussion. If you didn’t get the chance to see any of the Fringe recommendations, come anyway!

LIVESTREAM: We plan to livestream this event and will post the link here and on the facebook event page shortly. Please let us know if you intend to join us via livestream.
Our regular Conflict Resolution Writers Group is starting up again for a productive fall. We meet for 2 hours most Fridays and Saturdays beginning Friday, September 30th. Some sessions are online, others are in person meetings are locations around the Lower Mainland.

Conflict Resolution Week Media Releases
We are encouraging people who might be interested in drafting a Media Release of some kind to join us on Friday, Nov. 4th (Vancouver location tba). We’ll spend a bit of time at the beginning of the session talking about how to prepare Media Releases, where to send them, etc. in anticipation of Conflict Resolution Week, November 19-26. If you’ve been thinking about hosting a #ConResWeek event and want to make sure people know about it, consider joining us to craft a media release.
Blogging on Conflict Resolution Topics
Have you been thinking about blogging on a Conflict Resolution topic? Both CoRe and Mediate BC welcome blog posts for publication, as do many other conflict resolution and related sites. In fact, Mediate BC is actively seeking content in connection with Conflict Resolution Week for its own blog and to share with partners like Small Business BC and ClickLaw.
If you’d like to get started on your first blog or just like the idea of joining others to brainstorm and create blog posts on Conflict Resolution topics, let us know. We are planning a blog-specific session in November and want your input into location and date.
