TRIGGER Conversations presents: The Vanilla Life




What do you think about when you brush your teeth?

Wt does ur txting styl3 say about u?

What do digital calories mean to you? Can you binge on too many?


TRIGGER’s special event - The Vanilla Life - will be serving up obscure questions to tantalize taste buds to explore the sometimes-overlooked everyday. Don't be fooled by its seemingly mundane existence; the assumption of the banal. Routine doesn't have to be vanilla. We challenge you to dive into our menu, to chew the fat and gleam a hidden spice lurking in the bland. When tapped, the routines and formalities of the everyday bring greater understanding of ourselves and open us up to the possibilities of change. So come, bring a spoon and find out what's your flavour*.

- This is a special event –

Meet Olivia.

For this special event, Georgie is collaborating with Olivia.

Driven by the small joy radiated from bodies and faces when people have an electrifying conversation, Olivia has devoted her side hustle to exploring the power of conversations. From hosting sober morning raves, radio programmes and even her own philosophy supper club, to advocating for refugees and asylum seekers, she has learnt that conversation is art that - to be truly enlightening - must be nurtured.





Want to know more about TRIGGER Conversations?

TRIGGER Conversations events are evenings of deep, meaningful and exciting conversations with your peers. Expect a conversation menu – canapés, starters, main, dessert and cheese – the depth and length of the questions depends on the course. We give you the questions. You provide the answers. No prep necessary. Just turn up with an open mind. Ask something unusual. And be honest in your answers.

Tell someone what you really think and feel.

In a few words...


‘You spend a lot of time in conversations wanting to get to this point, and this is all about getting to the fun bit of the conversation… and it is facilitated so you get know something worthwhile about people right away and you want to share because people are here to share and people are here to listen.. it's a lot of fun…a lot of real, human experience packed into one evening.'


'Brilliant event the other night :) I've been meaning to come for ages, glad I finally did! It's so important that we do what we can to build up our social fabric - a fabric that can seem tragically weak at times - and this is a great step towards it. The questions force one to avoid the superficial and the automatic, and instead connect on a deeper level - something that we could do well translate into our daily lives.'


‘It was great to just spend an evening having stimulating conversations and developing perspective. There was no agenda to the conversations (i.e. networking, speed dating) and that was really cool: to value a good conversation for simply that. Thank you!’
