CULTURAL CONVERSATIONS FOR PRIVATE GROUPS

A Cultural Conversation is an enlightening exchange of thoughts, opinions and ideas about race in a safe space. Private groups can participate in a 90-minute dialogue facilitated by local experts in the fields of race relations and social justice. This exercise allows for small groups (5–25 people) to have a meaningful and transformative experience as they reflect on their everyday lived experiences with race.

Day or evening fee-based Cultural Conversations can be scheduled for corporate, non-profit and school organizations during the week. Cultural Conversations range in cost from $200 to $300 per program, with a maximum of 25 guests permitted for each program. Additional fees may apply depending on the scheduled time of the Cultural Conversation. Contact Sydney Bannerman at 919.707.9845 or sydney.bannerman@naturalsciences.org for pricing and availability.
