The Big Anxiety – Awkward Conversations

RMIT Culture2

Event Date: 7 October 2022 to 8 October 2022
Author / Presenters: The Big Anxiety

Sometimes the best conversations are awkward. What if you say the wrong thing? What if you make too much eye contact? Or not enough? What if nothing is spoken at all? Or your conversational partner is unlike anyone you have ever met before?

Awkward Conversations offers one-on-one conversations in experimental formats, tackling anxieties, habits and hard-to-talk about subjects like mental health.

Awkward Conversations plays with the idea that conversation about mental health is inevitably “awkward”, setting creative artists and inspiring thinkers the task of making it inviting, accessible, stimulating, meaningful and personalised. Participants are invited to experience one-on-one conversations that extend what constitutes a conversation – perhaps have a discussion with someone unexpected, sit in silence, or talk through the experience of being different.

To participate in this event you must be 18+. For information about conversationalists, visit The Big Anxiety website.

Awkward Conversations is co-presented by RMIT Culture and The Wheeler Centre.
