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.

The bookings on over the two days:

Debra Keenahan

Debra has achondroplasia dwarfism. She is always looked at, often stared at, sometimes laughed at, but what she really wants is to be spoken with.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
Choose from two conversations: take a walk with Debra along Circular Quay and find out how she sees the world and the world sees her – or sit down and talk about sex! Debra’s frank and funny conversation delves into people’s warped perceptions and taboos about sex and disability. Outrageous, funny, warm and always respectful.
