In-person Facilitation Training

Oregon Humanities' facilitation training prepares people to plan and facilitate conversations about vital issues and questions across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds. These conversations help build strong relationships within organizations and among communities. Read more about these trainings.

In-Person trainings are limited to the first sixteen people to sign up. Be ready to show proof of vaccination. Masks are not required, though we imagine that some people might opt to wear them. We will continue to follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Oregon Health Authority about in-person gatherings, and we’ll be ready to make changes and adapt. We will spend our time together talking in large and small groups, in small to mid-sized rooms at the office of Oregon Humanities in Portland. We will provide a light breakfast and lunch on both days. The training will take place over two days on Thursday, September 28, and Friday, September 29.

What Should Not Be Forgotten: Crafting Living Legacies

In this So Much Together workshop, author Susan DeFreitas will share the stories behind some of the larger-the-life activists and creative visionaries who've inspired her work and invite us to think about the person or people who have had significant impacts on our own lives. Through creative exercises and discussion, we’ll dig into the legacies of important individuals that we each help to carry. As we consider the ways we have been enriched by those who've gone before us, we'll gain insight into how we might better carry their legacies forward and even create our own.
