* World Café is a process for bringing people into the spirit of dialogue based on the assumption that people ­ no matter who they are ­ have the capacity to explore together even the most challenging issues.

The spirited conversations work in cozy living rooms and crowded ballrooms with equal success.

# Fee may be waived if we receive a hospitality grant from the City.
