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 Debra Keenahan!

Debra Keenahan

WHO: Debra Keenahan (Festival Ambassador) is never nobody. She’s always looked at, she’s often stared at, she’s commented about, and sometimes laughed at. What she really wants is to be spoken ‘with’. Debra has achondroplasia (dwarfism) and wants to help people to get comfortable with diversity.

HOW: Take a walk with Debra and see what it’s like for to walk down the street. Hear about her experience and have a chat eye-to-eye.

IS THIS FOR ME? Definitely. Good for everyone—lively and fun.
