Skip the Small Talk at Trident Books ONLINE (pay what you wish!) | Wednesday, 12. August 2020
About this Event
***This event is pay what you wish! You'll need the event URL, so be sure to register in advance so we can send it to you.***
Do you want some meaningful human connection without leaving the house? Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, this event will now be online! It will be facilitated almost identically to a normal Skip the Small Talk, using video chatting software. The first few we've hosted have gone surprisingly smoothly and we've gotten a lot of great feedback from people who have gone!
We will *actually* start on time for this (no, really!), so please arrive early and make sure you are on the website (we'll send you the link) right at 7:00 pm!
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?
Bring your friends (or come by yourself) and spend your Wednesday evening at an event where you know everyone else is there for the same reason.
We'll be offering question prompts with "big talk" conversational topics to get you started, and we'll have lots of structure to make sure that you actually talk to people and that it's not awkward. Not feeling like answering a particular question? No worries, we'll 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 ground rules to make sure you feel comfortable and safe sharing as much of yourself as possible while still feeling in complete control of how much you divulge.
Please do your best to arrive a couple minutes before 7:00 pm if you haven't been to one of these before so you don't miss the intro, but feel free to come late if you need to-- you'll still be able to participate just fine! If you've come to an online Skip the Small Talk before and would rather skip the intro, feel free to come at 7:10 pm.
Skip the Small Talk is dedicated to providing an inclusive, welcoming environment for everyone. Check out our safety policy here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fmhxMcSsdgkQYOZQZoUKC3DK511fDl3pcPyShB22W9s
Ready to skip the small talk with us? Grab a ticket since entry is on a first come first serve basis and we usually sell out in advance-- once we are out of tickets, we will not be able to accommodate folks at the door.
