Public Conversations Dialogue Project

We are in the second phase of the project which is funded by Building Change Trust where we are exploring testing the dialogue technique with other themes and issues.

One of the themes we would like to explore is the tensions and difficulties practitioner can encounter in local communities when discussing issues relating to community relations and good relations, such as display of flags and emblems. As part of the project we can offer free training /practical application of the PCP technique – it works best with a group of about 8-10 people and the session normally lasts between 2-3 hours.
