Bengaluru Speaks: NAMMA BENGALURU?

Leave a comment

Dear friend,

 

Come join us for the 11th session of

 

Bengaluru Speaks

An evening of uncommon conversation.

 

This Month’s theme: 
NAMMA BENGALURU ?

Civic Spaces to Engage, Enhance, Enjoy

SATURDAY, June 27th

4.30pm -7.00pm

 

Goethe-Institut /Max Mueller Bhavan (716 CMH RoadIndiranagar 1st Stage (opposite MK Ahmed Retail Store), Bangalore 560 0380)

Come engage in honest and constructive conversations about issues that matter to you and your city.

Last month’s Dialogue was “Dare to be an agent of Change? Your Wish List for the New Government”. It allowed participants to share their thoughts about the role of the government in bringing about real change in the society. Participants brain stormed concrete ideas as to how they themselves could contribute positively to changing the society.

 

Through insightful discussions, groups of participants were invited to understand people who have different backgrounds and perspectives on the issue. Most participants got new insights from the exercise and learnt about ways they could bridge the gap between what the government is doing and what they want at the local level.

 

This month, Meta-Culture Dialogics (MCD) will encourage participants to explore the topic:

NAMMA BENGALURU?

Civic Spaces to Engage, Enhance, Enjoy.

We would like to provide a platform for citizens of Bengaluru to share their thoughts on how they can connect in deeper ways with Bengaluru, and share ideas about how they can improve and benefit from the city.

 

The dialogue will help participants vocalize their hopes and aspirations for our Bengaluru. Participants will share their thoughts on pertinent questions that will be posed to them, as well as, have the opportunity to converse with fellow citizens of Bangalore about relevant issues, in a respectful and safe space.

 

All are welcome.  Invite your neighbours, colleagues and friends.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Bengaluru Speaks: The Urban Woman

Come join us for the 9th session of

Bengaluru Speaks

An evening of uncommon conversation.

This Month’s theme:
THE URBAN WOMAN:

Inspiration, Challenge, Threat ?

SATURDAY, April 4th

4.30pm -7.00pm

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF TIME

Ashirvad (30 St. Mark’s Cross Road, across from the State Bank of India, first right after the petrol bunk on St. Mark’s Road)

Come engage in honest and constructive conversations about issues that matter to you and your city.

Bengaluru Speaks is hosted by Meta-Culture. We work to build peaceable and sustainable communities by changing how individuals and groups in conflict talk with each other. For information about our activities, contact: www.meta-culture.org

Last month’s Dialogue: Competing Cultures: Morals, Malls and Marriages allowed participants to share their thoughts about the differences, shifts and clashes of culture in India today. While some sought to preserve tradition, others sought to change with the times-  some feared loss of identities, while others feared identities being forced upon them.

This month, MCD will encourage participants to explore the topic:

“The Urban Woman: Inspiration, Challenge, Threat ?”

This topic was chosen because of the recent violence against women in Bangalore. We would like discussion to both be in-depth and broad, where we talk about the role of women in Bangalore, their changing identity and the differences in perception of the Urban Woman.

Is the Urban Woman an inspiration, a challenge or a threat?

Participants will share their thoughts on pertinent questions that will be posed to them, as well as, have the opportunity to converse with fellow citizens of Bangalore about relevant issues, in a respectful and safe space.

All are welcome.  Invite your neighbours, colleagues and friends.

We look forward to seeing you there!
