The Mokita(R) Dialogue community conversation will be held on Thursday, January 23 beginning at 12:00 PM at 3 Dots Downtown, 137 East Beaver Avenue, State College. Spud Marshall, director of community innovation for 3 Dots, will be the facilitator. The word “Mokita” comes from the language of Kilivila, spoken near Papua New Guinea. It means “a known truth left unspoken;” think of it as an elephant in the room. Each dialogue session features activities that encourage thought and conversation, and also suggestions for ways to continue the discussion in our communities. All Mokita(R) Dialogues are free and open to the public. Thanks to the Downtown Improvement District, free parking in the Pugh Street Garage will be offered for those who attend a Mokita(R) Dialogues session.
