The Long Table originated as a performance installation by Lois Weaver, which experiments with using the private form of a dinner party as a structure for public debate. It encourages informal conversation on serious subjects and experiments with formats that inspire public engagement. The Long Table has been installed and performed as a public dinner party between artists, activists, academics, advocates and general audiences on subjects such as performance, social inclusion and human rights.

Anyone seated at the table can participate in the conversation * Talk is the only course * But a host may assist you * It is a democracy * To participate simply take an empty seat at the table * If the table is full you can request a seat * If you leave the table you can come back again and again * Feel free to write your comments, thoughts & questions on the tablecloth * There can be silence * There might be awkwardness * There could always be laughter * There is an end but no conclusion...

THIS EVENT IS PART OF THE CULTURE CONNEX FESTIVAL SEASON IN COLLABORATION WITH URBANFLO, PACE, BRIGHTON FRINGE, BRIGHTON PRIDE & UNIVERSITY OF SUSSEX (BLACK@SUSSEX)
