How does one engage in a dialogue, conversation or verbal interaction in a twentieth century world riddled with the complexities of crisis, hostility, catharsis and conflict? Racism, sexism, class, religion, gender, identity, and issues of sexual orientation are constantly driving people away from each other. How are humans going to live a life of meaning, purpose and peace if we cannot "talk" to and with each other? TOUGH TALK(s) will be a series of conversations to create pathways of opportunity understanding, respect and relationships. No distractions of audio, digital or photographic documentation are allowed in these sessions.
