City Conversations are free monthly lunchtime gatherings to ignite discussions on the issues affecting people in Metro Vancouver. Topics range from urban planning and design, art and architecture, the environment and the economy, housing, transportation and more. 

Everyone is welcome at City Conversations. Local thought leaders frame the conversations with brief presentations, but they are driven by you: your questions, your opinions, your knowledge are key ingredients so that we can all learn together.

On hiatus

Currently, City Conversations is on hiatus as we reimagine its future after the retirement of program director Michael Alexander.
