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 night at an event where you know everyone else is there for the same reason.

We'll be offering cards with "big talk" conversational questions on them 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. Our events are always trauma-informed, designed based in psychology research, and led by folks trained in therapeutic techniques.

There will be food and drinks for sale!

Check-in for this event will begin around 6:45 pm. Please do your best to arrive before 7 pm so we can begin as close to on time as possible.

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

Need accessibility accommodations?

We are happy to offer live ASL upon request. Due the use of one-on-one conversations during the event, we request at least five days' notice to make sure we are able to provide an ASL interpreter for each person who needs them. Please reach out to Ashley at [email protected] so we can discuss what we can do for you.

We encourage guests to do what they need to in order to feel as comfortable as possible during the event, like taking breaks, eating, stretching, using fidget tools, leaving early, etc.

While we acknowledge that there is no such thing as a space that is perfectly accessible for everyone, we do what we can to welcome as many people as possible while prioritizing the needs of those who are systematically oppressed. If you have any accessibility needs that we might be able to help with, please reach out to Ashley at [email protected]

**In accordance with local mandates, we will require vaccination cards upon entrance.**

We are monitoring COVID rates and our COVID policy is subject to change based on local guidelines.
