The Coffee Chat Series is a free and informal bi-monthly gathering where the Cultivating Ensembles (CE) community (formally CESTEMER) meets online to discuss various topics and hear from innovative practitioners. Each chat is focused on a theme at the intersection of science and the arts and is scheduled for approximately two hours. As with previous CESTEMER gatherings, the Cultivating Ensembles Coffee Chats will invite and foster participant interaction through play and collaborative learning.

About the Event
What does it mean to really listen? Let’s start with what listening is not: it’s not transactional. It’s not passive. It’s not waiting your turn to talk. Listening is activistic. It’s curious. It’s creative. It’s collaborative. It’s a performance.
Join Dr. Jim Martinez, Co-Chair of Cultivating Ensembles and Associate Professor at New York Institute of Technology, and Cathy Salit, Chief Organizer for the Global Play Brigade, in a playful, interactive session experimenting and exploring how to become a much, much better listener.
