About Community Dialogue
Community dialogue events created safe spaces for local people to engage in conversations about the things that were important to them. The programme aimed to bring together the voices of local people to discuss identity, diversity and living together. The programme also gave an opportunity for local people to have their voices and stories heard and connect with others across Walsall.
Importance of Community Dialogue
In our diverse society, positive relations between people of different faiths, beliefs and cultures are essential. Community Dialogue creates spaces where people can engage with questions around identity and meet people different from themselves. This enables people to learn from each other and create understanding and trust between people.
Benefits of taking part in Community Dialogue
Community Dialogue generated opportunities for often unheard voices and stories across Walsall to be heard. Through creative sessions, participants expressed their own stories and had the opportunity to learn from others. This project gave participants the opportunity to create stronger connections and friendships across Walsall.
