Event description

Description

Awkward Conversations offers one-on-one conversations in experimental formats, tackling anxieties, habits and hard-to-talk about subjects like mental health.

Sometimes the best conversations are awkward. What if you say the wrong thing? What if you make too much eye contact? Or not enough? What if nothing is spoken at all? Or your conversational partner is unlike anyone you have ever met before?

Awkward Conversations is a program of one-to-one conversations that extends what constitutes a conversation.

Come and enjoy not talking to different people and instead have your crown drawn, have an argument with someone unexpected, sit in silence, or talk through gesture about the experience of being different.

Amala Groom

Amala is a Wiradjuri conceptual artist who engages with First Nations knowledge(s) and perspectives on the human experience including anxiety.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
BE HEARD is an Awkward Conversation where the artist will engage in active listening on a one to one basis. Amala invites you to talk about anything you want, even if you are not sure what you want to talk about, that’s ok, together you will find a point of discussion. We all need to be heard.
