Axiom News gathered 25 creative local change-makers for three lunch conversations in late January, to explore a new media-making, learning and community-building project: The Peterborough Dialogues.

The third day's group found kindred spirits and deep connection among people whose main interests are as varied as environmental education, local business, anti-poverty work, storytelling and local food. Here are some of the reactions to that day. Videos from the first two days are here and here.

The Peterborough Dialogues are just weeks away from public launch. To stay up to date, join the mailing list at peterboroughdialogues.ca.

I had the privilege of joining another set of conversations with community members yesterday as plans for the Peterborough Dialogues continue to unfold.

The Peterborough Dialogues have been described as a forum for finding new ways to be active as citizens alongside existing systems. The initiative is set to launch in the few weeks.
