Skills for Dialogue & Communication

Workshop 2: "The Art of Asking"

Why do some questions get one-word answers, while others can be spring-boards for deeper discussion? Using "video encounters" and 3FF's "ASKeR" process, students explore how to ask questions about faiths and beliefs more sensitively, confidently and effectively. We'll look at some real-life tricky questions, and learn how to get the best from future interfaith encounters.

Through this workshop students will:

  • Understand how language can be helpful or unhelpful for creating positive relations between people of different beliefs
  • Practise communication tools enabling them to ask and answer questions about sensitive topics confidently and effectively
  • Deconstruct common assumptions and stereotypes around belief, culture and identity through “video encounters” with 3FF speakers

This is a companion workshop to "The Art of Empathy"
