The Make Shift Coffee House is a place for people with different views to exchange and consider different views. Guided by a neutral facilitator participants share experiences and opinions, ask each other questions, and try to understand each other.
It’s not about persuading or converting each other, or about condemning each other. It’s simply about learning each other’s perspectives.
In the new digital age it’s easy to choose our sources of information and reinforce what we already believe. It’s easy to surround myself with people that share my views. It’s easy to build opinions in isolation, each of us interacting with our own computer screen. It’s easy to avoid talking face-to-face.
The Make Shift Coffee House is a face-to-face place, in real time, with good old fashioned civic dialogue.
Make Shift Coffee Houses are facilitated by Craig Freshley of Good Group Decisions. A professional meeting moderator, Craig facilitates a civil exchange of ideas as a neutral third party. It’s not about judging right or wrong or good or bad, it’s about understanding each others’ perspectives.
