Sharing Spaces: Diverse Approaches and Communities
A space for diverse communities to be mutually empowered through the sharing of ideas, practices and experiences.

Everyday, we hear reports about everything going wrong with the world – war, climate change, human rights violations. It’s easy to believe that the world is coming apart at the seams.

However, that’s not the entire story. Even as the news paints this bleak picture, there are people who are making efforts to create a better world.

CAPTISS is dedicated to celebrating these individuals, and the wonderful projects that they are doing to make our world a better place. It’s a platform for people to learn from one another about how we can build, nurture and sustain spaces where diversity can flourish.

Come join us at CAPTISS 2018! Be part of the conversation.
