Welcome to Cut The Small Talk's monthly conversations!
This form has 8 questions for new guests, and 3 for returning ones.
This helps us create a safe, vibrant, productive space for 15 strangers. 

We're here to challenge norms, get practical with taboo topics, redefine things, ask blunt questions, & be intellectually stimulated. Here's how:
1. I am here with curiosity. I am looking to learn (not expecting to be taught).
2. I am here with open-mindedness. I am not here to judge -- myself or others. I am excited to entertain new ideas, even if I never believe or like them.
3. I will share when/if comfortable. I'll practise brevity and clarity when sharing!
4. We are enough. I will not try to fix others or offer advice without consent.
IMPORTANT: We'll confirm your seat or ask follow-up questions in 48 hours.

Hello, we're Angela, Amelie, and Adele. What's your name? *

 
Which dinner would you like to attend? *

IMPORTANT: You will get  follow-up questions (or email confirmation) in 48 hours. We'll fill up first-complete-first-serve 15 seats.

 
Why is this SPECIFIC topic important, interesting, or relevant to YOU? Take a personal/emotional angle, and a social/intellectual one. *

This is the key question -- take a couple of minutes. Responses are usually 3-4 sentences.
 
What are you looking for or expecting from this discussion? *

Is there a specific question you'd like to ask everyone, or something you'd like to share?
 
Will you take care of your own dinner,
or have us pick up a yummy, healthy option for you? *

Fruits, bread, water, and tea are always available!
After we follow-up, you'll confirm payment via Paypal.

 
Any suggestions for dinner topics you'd want to attend?

Why is it a good/interesting Cut The Small Talk topic?
 
If you're a returning Curious Dinners guest, please skip to the end and submit your form! If we have a spot for you, we'll email location and payment details.

If you're a new guest to Curious Dinners, welcome! Please tell us about yourself. Brief or lengthy answers are both fine -- the key is to answer ALL question parts. *


 
Hello, new guest {{answer_3515109}}!
a) How did you hear about us?
b) Please LINK any one social media you use: personal or company websites, Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, etc. This is to verify identity. (At the dinner, you are free to use an alias.)

To create a comfortable space for our guests -- if you are part of a media company or advocacy group, you are welcome to attend, but are not allowed to interview or report (without explicit permission).
 
I am here with curiosity. I am looking to learn (not expecting to be taught).
Tell us a recent story about what you learned in a non-academic context! Perhaps a realisation, surprising conversation, or mistake.

 
I am here with open-mindedness. I am not here to judge -- myself or others. I am excited to entertain new ideas, even if I never believe or like them.
a) What are things you have a strong opinions on? For ex, I feel dismissive of creationism (but enjoy hearing how this belief betters their world).
b) What do you do when someone voices a different view?

 
I will not try to fix others or offer advice without consent.
Let's say you choose to tell a personal story, one that you've never told before.
1) If you wanted others to support you (by listening, perhaps empathising, holding the space), how would you let them know?
2) If you wanted advice, how would you ask for it?

Thank you for helping us gather a good group of people! We will ask you to elaborate on your answers or confirm your seat within 48 hours.
We look forward to an energising and deep conversation with you!  Want to start now? https://www.facebook.com/groups/cutthesmalltalk/
