  • Coffee Can Conversations
    5:00pm Memorial Hall 113 - Diversity Center
    During this event, each attendee brings an item of cultural significance (something small enough to fit into coffee canisters or small buckets, i.e. currency, trinkets, decorations, fans, jewelry, etc.). The participants will split up into smaller groups and wear gloves. Each group will take out an item that is not theirs. Each person will describe the item (touch/texture with gloves on, colors, patterns, size) and if they feel any connections to it. Connections can be what the person holding it feels about the item or if the item reminds them of something in their own culture. For example, a comb might spark conversation about hairstyles in different cultures. After every person in the small group shares, all attendees will reconvene into the larger group and go around talking about their own cultural item. The purpose of this event is to let attendees learn about, be exposed to, and connect with various cultures, sharing their similarities and differences in items put into the coffee can/bucket and related topics. This will help foster an appreciation for the many different ways cultures can be connected, and also broaden participants' knowledge of possible influences and history of these cultural items. Talking about these objects can bring about conversations in related topics (i.e. a hair comb might spark a discussion on the importance of hairstyles in different cultures) that will allow participants to not only relate to a topic, but to other people with differing backgrounds/stories, thus forging or strengthening bonds between students/faculty/staff/members of the Appleton community. This is a diversity-related event.
