Description

Michelle Gonzalez, Consultant, Multicultural Center. Juanita Brown, originator of the prevalent World Café model, describes it as “both a vision and a method of dialogue.” In a café ambience, with paper tablecloths, colored pens, quiet music, and refreshments, participants take part in a series of timed conversational rounds about questions that are personally meaningful to them. At the end of each round, one person remains as host to share the essence of the conversation with newcomers, while the others move. Newcomers relate any conversational threads they are carrying. Participants are encouraged to visually represent conversational threads on the paper tablecloths. (High school delegates and available Freedom Summer veterans are encouraged to participate).
