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 Dawn-Joy Leong!

Dawn-Joy Leong

WHO: Dawn-joy is an autistic artist, neurodiversity advocate, musician and writer with hyper-sensory capacities. She notices things that others may not – sounds, lights, smells, textures – which are often harsh, jarring and painful to her. Join Dawn in her quest for refuge ad calm, inside a ‘clement space’, designed for respite from an over-stimulating environment.

HOW: Dawn welcomes you into her pod to chat with her one-on-one: with words or without words, ask questions or offer ideas; make something together or just sit in silence. We can have a conversation that is comfortable for both of us.

IS IT FOR ME? Dawn relates especially well to autistic people and those with social anxiety but is happy to talk to anyone.
