is what we make of it.

Talking Politics without Arguing

This post is the landing page for a three-part series that is more about public discourse than public space, but I think the two are closely related.  For me, the real value of indoor public spaces is that they can give people who wouldn’t normally talk to one another a place to have meaningful, non-confrontational discussions about art and life and politics.

Part 1 will look at the question of complexity and try to explain how it’s possible that two people saying contradictory things can both be right.

Part 2 will take a look at how we can talk to one another in a way that leaves space for people on both sides of a discussion to be right about some things while also beginning to see for themselves where they might have gone wrong.

Part 3 will take a look at how each of us can learn to enjoy being wrong
