Creating space for transformative conversations
Building QMUNITY: Report on Community Consultation
SFU’s Centre for Dialogue conducted a community-wide consultation to identify the perspectives of LGBTQ communities on QMUNITY’s future roles and its programming priorities. The consultation comprised a multi-pronged engagement strategy including feedback from community partners, scoping interviews with stakeholders, a one day community dialogue, eight small dialogue sessions with focused LGBTQ communities, and a survey (online as well as paper-based). The consultation was initiated to provide feedback to QMUNITY useful for defining the organization’s direction as well as for planning, developing and launching a new community centre in the West End of Vancouver (funded through a $10 million grant from the city of Vancouver).
