We all know it's good to talk, but sometimes it's hard to get the conversation flowing . . .

'The Culture of Encounter - A conversation toolkit' was created in collaboration with A Year of Conversation, Voluntary Arts Scotland, the Scottish Library & Information Council and the Scottish Book Trust.

In it, you'll find ideas for conversation starters, activities for group meetings, and topics to get you thinking and feeling.
