Belonging in Corona Times
The theme of The National Dialogue Week 2020 is Belonging in Corona Times. No matter young or old, everyone discusses this across the country. Where do you belong, and when do you belong in your village, city, district, or neighborhood? What about others around you? How do people think, look, believe, and live differently than you do? What is significant about those times, and what does this require?
What makes you comfortable nowadays? What is your favorite music? You can mail your corona song, spoken words, music, poem, or story to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is an online dialogue?
You talk to others from your computer, video, or smartphone through online zoom sessions in an online dialogue. Zoom sessions let people see and hear each other through video. You will have a conversation with 4 to 6 people on the internet under a dialogue facilitator’s guidance. We share our experiences, hope and actions in line with the dialogue methodology. Once you registered, you will have the zoom link and password.
