Discussion Series

img_7966Our Discussion Series on Conflict is opportunity for mediators, conflict professionals, and anyone who is interested to develop their critical thinking tools by participating in a conversation about conflict with a unique starting point: literature and arts. Using a book, a newspaper article, a play, a song or video, participants are invited to critically reflect on conflict themes and ideas. The intent is to develop critical thinking capacities, draw out intrinsic insights, and generating robust discussion. Our hope is to invite arts, music, culture and literature curators to participate in this conversation with us.


Monthly, an online 90 minutes conversation is facilitated by Aaron Leakey or Sharon Sutherland with a guest facilitator, often representing the theme or topic. You are invited to join in this conversation that, along with generating new ideas, is intended to spark creativity, humour, and build community. A short (optional) pre-reading will be provided in advance, along with brief blub on the monthly topic with guiding questions to prompt early reflection. Check the homepage and our social media for these pre-readings
