Start a Living Room Dialogue

A living room dialogue is a small gathering of people who join to watch a UPF film and discuss it. A living room dialogue typically takes place in a living room, but it can be held at a coffee shop, library, or other comfortable space. A living room dialogue must include at least five people, and the host must agree to pass out pre-dialogue and post-dialogue evaluation forms. Sign up to host a living room dialogue.

Start a Community Dialogue

A community dialogue is hosted by an organization such as a university, a citizens group, or a religious group. The organization signs up to host the dialogue, receives the DVD of the UPF film it has selected, then hosts a screening of the film. The 20,000 Dialogues team supports organizations that host community dialogues by providing customized train-the-trainer orientations as well as resources for publicizing the community dialogue.
