Do you wish you could have more of the kinds of conversations you have late at night where for some reason, you feel safe talking about the things you actually care about? Are you interested in having those conversations with people from all over the world?
Bring your friends (or come by yourself) and spend your Friday night at an event where you know everyone else is there for the same reason. This one is at Hostelling International Boston, so there will be a mix of travelers and locals to dive deep with!
We'll be offering cards with "big talk" conversational questions on them to get you started. Not feeling like answering a particular question? No worries, we have plenty to choose from, like, "When are you the happiest?" and, "If you were going to become close friends with me, what would I need to know about you?" We'll give you some structure and ground rules to make sure everyone feels comfortable and safe sharing as much of themselves as possible. We'll strive to provide a space where you can push your comfort zone in talking openly while still feeling in complete control of how much you divulge. Ashley, a phone volunteer at a suicide hotline, will be available to talk if tough subjects come up.
For this event, you'll have the option of participating in our structured conversations or having freeform conversations, both using our conversation prompt cards!
There will be light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, so we recommend eating dinner before or after.
Check-in for this event will begin around 5:30 pm. Please do your best to arrive before 6 pm so we can begin as close to on time as possible.
