Oregon Humanities' Conversation Project "trains facilitators to lead reflective conversations on topics of their choosing. Organizations then request to host these conversations in their communities with support from Oregon Humanities. These conversations can take multiple forms.

  • Community Conversation: a single, ninety-minute program

  • Reflective Conference: multiple conversations held over a single day

  • Expanded Conversation: a longer conversation customized to the host organization’s interests"
