“The Stranger Dinners” is a series of chance events. Strangers come together to create a collaborative meal (potluck), producing the potential for serendipitous meetings and unexpected happenings. Anyone can RSVP to one of these dinners, with a maximum of 7 new guests per dinner. This event engages individuals in a unique situation of spending one night at an intimate gathering with people they may have never met, and may never see again.
This project explores the idea of individual expression and temporal intimacy, and allows guests to explore the freedom of interacting with new people outside of expectation, commitment, prior knowledge, or self segregation.
Please bring something of your choosing to share to dinner. Guests are also encouraged to bring any other items they would like to use as entertainment, conversation starters, favors, or show and tells.
$5-$10(+) suggested donation at the door covers incidentals, ambiance, social lubricants, and helps support this and other creative endeavors. No one turned away for lack of funds.
To attend a Stranger Dinner, RSVP by registering for a ticket. For an intimate dinner, we must discourage flakes. Please only reserve a ticket if you are 100% sure you will attend.
