Common Ground Community Conversation and the Cleveland History Center: History & Conversations: Let’s Learn About Cleveland!
Join the Cleveland History Center for this Common Ground Community Conversation about place. Attendees will simultaneously engage in critical conversations while participating in interactive activities with the Cleveland Starts Here® sponsored by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation and Carl & Louis Stokes Making History exhibits. Break bread with your neighbors, contribute to civil civic discourse, and learn more about our fair city Cleveland History Center’s Common Ground Community Conversation.
About Common Ground:
Launched by the Cleveland Foundation in 2017, Common Ground is a one-day event bringing thousands of engaged Greater Clevelanders together around tables to share a free meal and conversation – connecting in a way that nurtures familiarity, encourages understanding, and inspires action. Residents, organizations, and businesses can host their own Common Ground conversation on June 24 at the location and time of their choice. By registering to host a Common Ground conversation, individuals and organizations commit to bringing together one or more tables of 8-10 people to share a meal and discuss the future of our region. Support for guest registration, conversation facilitation, and participant recruitment/promotion will be provided to all Common Ground hosts by the Cleveland Foundation.
“Last year, more than 2,000 people came together across 42 locations on a single day to have a conversation on how to move our community forward,” said Michael D. Murphy, Cleveland Foundation chief marketing officer. “Building on this success and the positive feedback from attendees, we are so pleased to partner once again with many wonderful organizations and individuals in our community to expand the number of conversations across the three counties we serve.”
