 Soups&Stories have experimented with various methods of exchanging personal stories and experience. In short a dialogue is an investigative and experimental group conversation with a nonhierarchical structure where consensus is not the goal. Dialogues create a context for conversation in which new and nuanced insights into local and international issues can emerge. The point is not to agree or win over others to one’s point of view; rather it is too listen to each other and share perceptions, experiences, and worldviews.
