The Wedge Live: Restorative Conversations Across Divides
Saturday, February 25
2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
The Nomad Playhouse, 1410 Quince Avenue, Boulder, 80304
Join Spaceship Media & Colorado Public Radio on Feb 25 in Boulder to learn tools and tactics for bridging divides with the people you love.
Do you ever struggle to communicate about divisive issues with a friend or family member? Join us for an experience exploring how to bring people with whom you disagree back into your life. We invite you to come and spend an afternoon inspired by “The Wedge” podcast from Spaceship Media and Colorado Public Radio.
In the podcast, host and journalist Erica Anderson and her mom have restorative conversations in the midst of a heated, divisive conflict about vaccine skepticism. But it’s not easy. Psychologist Dr. Julie Colwell of the Evolutionary Power Institute helps Erica and her mom find common ground and strategies for open communication.
At the Feb. 25 event, Dr. Colwell will guide two loved ones who disagree about a divisive issue through a public discussion of their values and views. Then we’ll break into small groups with other practitioners from the Evolutionary Power Institute to discuss the obstacles we face when we try to talk about polarizing issues. Come ready to listen, learn, talk and think.
