What is the Vancouver Dialogues Project?
The Dialogues Project is a project convened by the City of Vancouver, in collaboration with 27 diverse community partners. The goal of the project is to build increased understanding and strengthened relations between Indigenous, Aboriginal and immigrant/non-Aboriginal communities.
The first phase of the project (January 2010 - July 2011) included five main initiatives, including dialogue circles, community research, cultural exchange visits, youth & elders program and legacy projects.
In its second phase (2012), the Dialogues Project sought to strengthen youth representation in moving the dialogue forward. The aim was to engage youth in forming long lasting relationships based in mutual understanding and respect, through the use of youth-defined, accessible, and relevant mediums and spaces.
