Everyone knows the best bits of gathering like Marmalade happens in the corridors. The snatches of conversation in the toilets, the encounters in the bar, the mutual wandering when searching for the right room, the times when you and stranger both reach for the last muffin in the Cafe and then have to be overly polite about who gets it.
This stuff happens naturally with so many people in a building, but to ramp it up further we’ll be lubricating the cogs of interaction, pumping the bellows of conversation and tightening the nuts of connection with a whole host of characters and a generous dash of music.
So, what have we got in store?
Popping into the Cafe for a coffee or a spot of lunch? Fancy a chat with someone new? On each table there will be two cards. Simply turn the card over to say whether you are happy to chat or would rather not be disturbed. Who knows who you may get chatting to?
Need somewhere to charge your phone? Fancy a sit down? Look no further. You’ll be able to recharge your batteries, both literally and metaphorically, at our chat n’ charging station.
Ever lied to a funder? Ever over-claimed in a tweet? Ever pretended to understand what systems change means? Step into the confessional booth and tell all to our priest in residence…
