The voice of Ace in the City, cultivating conversations around critical topics in our world, doing so with a spirit of curiosity and humility.

About

We live in a world increasingly marked by division, hostility, echo chambers and us-versus-them shouting matches.

Yet we all long for a world marked by peace, wholeness, beauty and justice.

A world marked by belonging.

All City Presents is the voice of Ace in the City, and was birthed out of the desire to cultivate important conversations around critical topics in our world, doing so with a spirit of curiosity and humility. We believe the way forward is to listen, to learn and to engage in actual face-to-face dialogue with each other.

We hope that you will see that spirit displayed in each All City Presents podcast episode and at every All City Presents event, and you will feel invited to help move these crucial conversations forward.

Your story matters, your voice is important, and we hope you’ll join us on this journey!

Podcast

We invite you to give each episode of All City Presents a listen, actively reflect on the content of the conversations, and then share your thoughts and questions with us at allcitypresents@aceinthecity.org.

Your voice will help us shape future podcast conversations. We believe that mutual curiosity, dialogue, listening and learning will move us together toward a more just, whole and beautiful world.

So listen in and then join the conversation with us!
