Event description

Description

Embracing the awkwardness of human conversation, this program offers a unique opportunity for intimate one-on-one conversations in experimental formats, tackling anxieties, debilitating habits and hard-to-talk-about subjects like mental health.

Awkward Conversations make no demands, have no expectations, and require no social skills whatsoever.

About

Our “AWKWARD CONVERSATIONALISTS” are each inspired by their own lived experiences. A mix of artists, performers and activists, they are committed to creating ways to connect, to flouting the rigid conventions of normal social communications and to respecting radical diversity.

We highly encourage people to book tickets to secure a spot with our Awkward Conversationalists. Places will be available on the day, but numbers are limited, so get in early! The Awkward Conversations Program is a safe space but would like to advise participants that conversations may contain diverse and potentially sensitive content.

Have an awkward convo with Alessandro Donagh-De Marchi!

Alessandro Donagh-De Marchi

WHO: Alessandro Donagh-De Marchi (Festival Ambassador) has been an active advocate for mental health issues and awareness for several years after his own experiences with depression and anxiety. He believes that open discussion around difficult topics is vital to start conversations that can not only improve lives but also, in some cases, to save them.

HOW: The S-word – Alessandro offers calm, level headed conversations about suicide. Let’s just say the word and see where it goes. To make this easier, ideas can be written or drawn on a large sheet of paper at the table. Put down anything you’ve always wanted to say or ask about suicide (and read what others leave behind).

IS THIS FOR ME? Yes. It’s for anyone who has ever thought about suicide – as well as those who haven’t and feel they need to know more.
