Changemaker Conversations

The Changemaker Conversations Project is a space for generative dialogue, meaningful connection and inspiration.

In partnership with Trico Changemakers Studio, Calgary Foundation is bringing together community members and partners to have conversations on various social and environmental challenges.

We believe that everyone is a changemaker and that by sharing our stories, experience and knowledge, we activate and inspire the work of social change. Our intention is that these conversations will inspire new ways of knowing, being and doing and will engage our head, heart and hands in the work of changemaking.
