Intercultural & Interfaith Partnerships: How to Make Your Relationship Work

This panel discussion is an opportunity for individuals to reflect on the positive aspects and the challenges of interfaith and cross-cultural relationships. How do you negotiate differences? How could this impact on parenting? What about other family relationships?

Panellists will speak from a professional knowledge of conflict resolution, relationship counselling and also from personal experience. There will be an opportunity for questions and conversation amongst the panellists and the audience.
