Start a Living Room Dialogue

Congratulations on deciding to host a living room dialogue, a small gathering of people who join to watch a UPF film and discuss it. Your living room dialogue may take 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.

  • Invite Participants
    Learn how to find people in your community who might want to participate in your dialogue and to use online invitation tools such as Evite. Download the text for an invitation e-mail.
