[As heard on KUOW & seen on The Evergray & Seattle Times ]

Curated & produced by Jenna Bean Veatch

"While Veatch is hesitant to give away what exactly will be on the roster for those who show up with a desire to find a love connection—whether they’re gay or straight, young or old, black or white, Democrat or Republican—she notes that it will be a structured event involving things like writing exercises, opportunities to talk one-on-one, and chances to present oneself to the entire group. (If you’re coming, you should also be sure to bring along a notebook.)" - Cascadia Weekly

From past attendees:

"This is like benevolent counter-culture."

"You made a potentially awkward night super fun!"

"I left feeling more connected to my community and more connected to myself."

“I so appreciate you holding this space, and bringing depth, light-heartedness and hope to so many people.”

“Thank you SO much for organizing the event. It was a lot of fun, and I even left to grab drinks after with a new friend!”

"A heart-felt thank you for the invitation and space to be safely me. Thanks to your helpful crew, too! Let’s keep doing this good work--the world needs us!”

About this structured, participatory, social practice art event:

"Are you a nice person
who just wants to meet another nice person?
This event is for you!

Wanna know what it would look like if an artist came up with an antidote to cruise-y bar scenes and soulless dating apps?
Come find out!

"What if I'm gay?"
That's great!
This event is not just for straight people.

"Aw, I do want love, but I'm too old."
No you're not!
This event draws adults of all ages.

Are you scared?
It's okay. Me, too.
Let's be scared together.

This structured, participatory event is all about connection. It's fun. And surprising. And weird! And real. People come not to judge or be judged. They come to connect -- meaningfully and genuinely.

Bring a notebook!"
