About this Event

Awkward Conversations

A series of artistic interventions to help groups and individuals practice having difficult conversations.

Fridays

12-12:50pm Eastern

I was raised not to speak about politics or religion at the dinner table. Paired with a directive not to “air my dirty laundry” outside the home, the message was clear: vulnerability is not ok.

How’s that working for me? It’s not.

You? I didn’t think so.

And, It doesn’t work for society.

I’m offering us all an opportunity to embrace our collective awkward vulnerability. Yup.

This is a chance to come together and try to overcome the social directives we swallowed and our primal fears around being vulnerable.

I’ll have a new topic the first week of each month. That first conversation is open to anyone, and free for all. But, these conversations are not a free for all. I will facilitate our discussion to keep things respectful and flowing. Three follow up conversations will follow, open to anyone who wants to practice/pursue the topic further.

I’d love to hear your ideas for topics: https://forms.gle/J9qgcC2FKpEdMHv3A

Up First: Listening Across Racial Divides

Based on the performance & film: “Hey White Girl” by Kelly King, Greer Reed, Tuyet Pham, and JJ Johnson.

REGISTER to receive the zoom link and to view two short, filmed versions of the piece as support materials for our discussion. We will begin with this common ground, then branch out according to the natural ebb and flow of the conversation and interests of participants. As this is the first month, we’ll only have one follow-up conversation.
