Cultural Conversations

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Cultural Conversations is a safe space for community connection that inspires change through storytelling, new friendships, awareness of diverse cultures, and common bonds.”

Little did we know how quickly our world would change following our early February annual forum “Just Between Us” . Our storytellers shared their stories of personal courage, fighting bigotry, longing-to-belong, and finding voice to ask for support. This unprecedented time of global pandemic finds each of us navigating in-between spaces that were once familiar, experiencing isolation and reshaping our relationships. We are reminded, when we are most vulnerable, we often can experience connection.

Through this platform we encourage women in the community at this time of social-distancing and self-care to create a space, “Welcoming the World through my Window”.

What are you learning about yourself, family or community at this time of COVID-19?

This is a space for you to reflect, share your story and read those of others.  The theme is “Welcoming the World through my Window”. Similar to an in-person Cultural Conversations, we are listening so that we might see ourselves in your story and find a place for connection. In this space you can post a short written story (150 words or less) with or without a picture, or a video (90 seconds or less). You have the option whether to allow comments on your posting. 

Please remember this is a public website and anyone can view your posts, so don't share any information that would impact your privacy. Feel free to interact with other community members in a positive way, offering support, encouragement or humor! Let's stay away from politics!  Finally, if you think you might be experiencing mental health concerns, we encourage you to seek help from a professional. A list of covid-19 resources can be found on the Engaging Bellevue homepage. 

Thank you for sharing your story with us.
