Long table regroup

All groups come together for a ‘long table’ discussion where everyone is encouraged to bring their “ripe fruit”  from the breakout sessions. This means bringing the “big juicy” parts that are key takeaways from the three themed discussions; the bits the whole group can discuss and sink their teeth into.

What is the long table discussion?

It is an experimental open public forum that is a hybrid of performance, installation, roundtable, discussion, dinner party designed to facilitate dialogue through the gathering of people of common interests. 

It is designed to stage public conversations around difficult subjects. 

How it works: 

  • Long Tables begin with a group of people sitting around a table that is set with empty chairs. 
  • To begin the conversation a question is asked, and participants are able to take a seat at the table if they wish to speak. 
  • Participants are not allowed to speak unless they are sitting at the table, and they may join or leave the table at any time. 
  • If there are no seats available they are permitted to ask for a seat.
  • The event has been described as ‘a performance of a dinner party where the conversation is the only course.’
