In contrast to the standardized formats of scholarly events and auditorium seating, our Open Exchange series offers a platform for audience members and special guests to sit together in an open non-hierarchical way (a circle, a square…) and engage in an open dialogue led by the special guests. With this program, we aim to prioritize and open a space for narratives and knowledge that are collectively formed and shared via storytelling, music listening parties, Indigenous talking circles, spiritual teaching and healing sessions, etc.
