At our Socials (that we run online and in-person), we divide you into small groups, then give you a structured conversation game to play. It has the capacity to cut through the usual social norms that hold us back, and deliver us some very real and interesting connections with other people.
We’ve discovered that these events are in many ways better in the online format. They’re easier to get to, they’re quieter and therefore more personal, and they allow for interactions with people outside of your geographical area. We run different versions for different sub-communities and identities.
Once you’ve logged on, we’ll show you a short training video, then break you into a group of about five people. One person asks a question, which each person answers, and then it's the next person's turn to ask a question. This deceptively simple little game (along with a few mechanisms we’ve added to help it flow well) is at times profound, funny, intriguing, and surprising. It's a profoundly efficient and enjoyable way to hang out with other people.
After you've been in that group for about an hour, we'll have a break, and then put you in with a second group of people, also for about an hour.
At the end of the Social, if you've connected with someone and would like to offer to share your details, we have a safe, easy, and totally optional way for you to do that.

This is one of ~30 workshops offered by Curious Creatures (Australia’s biggest provider in the field). If you’re interested in this event you may want to check out the in-person version at the pub, ‘Curiously Social Creatures’.
Our 'rounds' of tickets are really simple: they're all the same, except that some of them are cheaper, to encourage you to book in early (because it makes a huge difference to us in terms of planning).
