A conversation
Our multi-cultural communities have enriched and shaped the nation of Wales and its people over a very long period of time, but we are now living in a period of questioning :

What is the Wales we hope for and want for all its people?

What lessons can be learned from the manner of the engagement between the different cultures and faiths in Wales?

What is the place, responsibilities and opportunities for faith communities in the shaping of contemporary Wales?
