||The social event 'Curiously Social Creatures' begins with a couple of fun little mingling activities, then the rules for the main game are introduced: 'Curious Q&A'. This is a structured way of having conversations with about five other people, at times funny, at times profound, at times... what...ever you want it to be.
It's a way of getting to know people that doesn't hinge on the usual social laws; the structure allows people that normally carry the conversational load to sit back and relax, and it allows for quieter people to be heard.
It's a bit like speed-dating. Except it's not quick, and nor is it about dating. And nor does it feel like a dating or pick-up event. But you do get to connect with a bunch of folks.
INTENSITY: You can get into some deep conversations, but most people regard this as fairly gentle; one, or maybe two, out of four chillies.
WHO FOR: Anyone that is interested in meeting people and having real conversation.
WHO NOT FOR: Not for people that don't like people.
WHAT EXERCISES / ACTIVITIES?: Some quick mingling pair-work exercises at the start, then ‘Curious Q&A’ in groups of 5-7 people.
WILL THERE BE PARTNER WORK?: Yes - some quick verbal exchanges at the start. Then most of the time is spent in small groups playing 'Curious Q&A'.
HOW WILL PARTNERING BE DONE?: Randomly.
CAN YOU WORK WITH AN EXISTING PARTNER / FRIEND?: No. (But not really relevant).
NUDITY: No nudity in this workshop (We mention this because we run a lot of sexuality workshops).
SEXUAL CONTENT: No sexual content, however sexually themed questions have been known to happen.
COMMITMENT: You can 'pass' on any question that's not right for you. You can also answer only to the level that's right for you; you don't have to give up your life's secrets if you don't want to.
RATIO EXPERIENTIAL / THEORETICAL: Mostly experiential. There's a small amount of theory, just to explain the rules of 'Curious Q&A'.
