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 Malcolm Whittaker!

Malcolm Whittaker

WHO: Malcolm is interested in dispelling the anxiety of being ignorant by having open discussions that focus on what we do not know, and what we do not know that we do not know. He is an artist and an “expert in not knowing” (the subject of his PhD).

HOW: Take a leisurely walk through the library with Malcolm. Confess the limitations of your knowledge and understanding in a safe space in which you can ask each other any questions on your mind, without necessarily looking for answers to them. You’ll feel better for it!
