WHAT IS DIM SUM DIALOGUES?
Dim Sum Dialogues is a series of panel discussions based on the idea of sharing valuable knowledge, experience, and insight, led by members of the creative community. We started Dim Sum Dialogues as a platform to call for visibility, discourse, and intersectional unity in the face of social issues. While these complex and deeply rooted problems cannot be solved in one afternoon, we believe conversations like these can spread positivity, make a difference, and bring – as Dim Sum literally translates to – "a light touch on the heart".
