What has the pandemic revealed to you?  Join us in discovering the complex answers to this question and what it says about our community.  This is not about forming a committee. It is not about solving a problem. It is about hearing from diverse voices and building connections.

Join us as we use the basecamp model for bringing people together in conversation. Basecamp, developed by Chris Kutarna, is a series of facilitated conversation where people come together to better understand complex issues facing our communities, to ask questions, to hear perspectives from other sectors and experiences, and to learn new ways of having conversations.    

Our hope is that this will help us all gain knowledge and insights as we work to move forward positively and productively in uncertain times.   

Chris Kutarna was born and raised in Regina and is currently living in London. He is a published author, two-time Governor General’s Medalist, a Commonwealth Scholar and Fellow of the Oxford Martin School. In 2019, he presentered at Regina Public Library to a sold-audience on the findings and ideas of his book Age of Discovery. 

This program is presented through zoom.
