When the next Conversation Cafe is held next month, participants will examine how they understand culture in Summerland.

The Conversation Cafe is organized by the municipality’s Cultural Development Committee and will be held on Sept. 12.

Barbara Thorburn, one of the organizers of the event, said she wants to see as many people as possible attending.

“There are many different definitions of culture,” she said.

“We want the community to be thinking and be engaged in a discussion of what culture means to us.”

She added that culture need not be restricted to the arts but should also include diversity and multiculturalism.

After the discussion, members of the municipality’s Cultural Development Committee will review the comments and meet with municipal council.

“We’ll look at the results and see what the people have to say.”

David Finnis will be the moderator for the evening.

The Conversation Cafe will be held at the IOOF Hall, 9536 Main St. on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
