Documentary Screening & Training Program: The Dialogue Lab Method: Creating Shared Meaning and Enabling Meaningful Action 

The last event in our series with invited speaker Christy Vines will be a screening of the Ideos Institute's 2022 documentary, Dialogue Lab: America, a story of 12 strangers who came together in an audacious social experiment on political polarization. The hour-long film chronicles the group’s journey as each individual shares their story, discovers common ground, and forges a path to mutual understanding.  

The screening will be followed by a mini Dialogue Lab workshop where you can experience Ideos' training in the art and practice of dialogue-based relational, social, and systems change. At the end of the 60-minute training, you will walk away with new skills and tools that can help you: 

  • challenge your unconscious biases and misplaced judgments
  • break down barriers that can lead to misunderstanding and isolated thinking
  • create shared meaning and mutual understanding with those you disagree with
  • lay the groundwork for authentic relationships and meaningful action.

Co-Sponsored by the Deliberative Citizenship Initiative, Office of the Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer, Dean Rusk International Studies Program, Chaplain’s Office, and Public Lectures Committee.

This is an in-person event.
