10:00amSunday

The conversation lab is about building bridges into our community and learning from each other. This project intersects with my PhD program with the Social Justice Institute at UBC.  Giving community groups, not for profit organizations, and changemakers a voice to talk about those things that are most important to them. I want to research and study the science, psychology, cultural, and emotional components of conversation, and what they have in common to gain insight and improve on existing knowledge of how we engage with each other whether about climate, race, gender, culture, politics, or social justice issues.  I believe this work can contribute to positive social change. The Conversation Lab is produced by CFRO FM (Co-op Radio) in Vancouver's downtown east side on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-waututh) Nations.
