A Conversation Dinner is a format for a community dinner party that encourages radical, meaningful conversations between people meeting for the first time. You walk in, get paired up with someone, sit opposite them at a table over food, and start a conversation about each other’s lives with the help of a menu of questions like ‘what does work mean to you?’
Theodore Zeldin came up with the format and set up a charity, Oxford Muse, to promote it. Conversation Dinners have now been held all over the world and I want to run one in Edinburgh. I’m looking for a venue and a way to provide food for around forty people.
If you’re interested in lending a hand, or coming along, I would really love for you to get in touch.
