“How important is it to be culturally informed?” — the first question we've asked our 6-person group for the pilot episode of Conversations. The rest is history.

“Conversations” is a platform that brings together people of different backgrounds. It allows individuals to share their views with others whose perspective and experiences may be at the opposite end of the spectrum. Each Conversation seeks to open the participants’ minds to various topics and ideas that tend to be left out or forgotten in day-to-day discussions. “Conversations” are filmed and broadcast online to engage a broader audience. “Conversations” is a project by BLCKMSSN.
