What if you left your bubble and met someone new?

The United States is becoming more and more polarized, socially and politically. These divisions show up in our own community as well, with sharp divides on both sides of issues such as politics, housing, gun laws, attitudes towards the LGBTQ+ community, etc. As in many other places, people tend to stay in their bubbles, only interacting with like-minded people.

The overarching idea of this event is that it is difficult to see someone as "other" when you have had an opportunity to connect with them as a human being, therefore through simple conversations, deep divisions can begin to be healed.

This free and interactive event will include:

  • 1:1 Conversations with people with different identities
  • "Communitree" and other Interactive Art
  • Curious Scroll with Andrew Purchin
  • Un/Seen Identities Project

    This event is presented in partnership with the Conflict Resolution Center of Santa Cruz County.
