Upcoming Dialogues in English

Through dialogue, people with different backgrounds, interests, and opportunities get the chance to meet and inspire each other. 

Getting to Know Each Other

In conversation you learn about others, and discover things about yourself. Every conversation is an opportunity. By talking to each other, we come to understand each other better, and may form lasting relationships.

Although Utrecht is an old city, it’s always full of new arrivals. Utrecht in Dialogue aims to connect newcomers and longtime residents for positive conversations and shared inquiry. Whether you’ve just moved to the region or have lived here all your life, you’re welcome to join an English-language event and get to know fellow residents through dialogue.

What exactly is a dialogue?

A dialogue is a way of talking with others. Of appreciating differences and inquire themes.from different perspectives to reach new insights. The basis of any dialogue is a willingness to listen, and to invite others to speak. Everyone enjoys equal standing. Everyone participates, and everyone’s input counts.
