What do you see more similarities or differences between cultures?
October 19
CITY CENTRE LIBRARY ROOM 402

Are you interested in connecting with members of your community to explore how we can become a healthier and more inclusive city? If so, join us at the Inclusive City Cafes, a series of community dialogues to discuss the challenges and opportunities of living in a diverse community.

Join moderators Piyush Mehta and Wafa al-Jabiri on October 19th, from from 7:00 until 8:30 pm, as we ask what you see more: the similarities or differences between cultures?

Canada is a country of immigrants. We all bring different cultural perspectives and traditions that affect our day-to-day lives. However, depending on what one might want to see or focus on, one might notice more similarities than differences between cultures and vice versa. Come and share with us what you see more and why.

This is the second session of the fall series of the Inclusive City Philosophers' Cafes in Surrey. This series focuses on at theme of "Culture and Society."
