A format for intimate conversation created by Lois Weaver of Split Britches. This session will be hosted by Jo Bannon.
Porch Sittings take seriously the idea that dialogue can happen side-by side, rather than face-to-face with an expert. It makes space for the things we wonder rather than providing a platform for the things we know.
A side-by-side, informal discussion between attendees inspired by the notion of sitting on the porch, watching the world go by. Everyone can come and go as you please as long as they pay due respect to the silence or the flow of conversation. It is a space to sit, think, dream or get involved in the ongoing conversation. These conversations are quiet and private.
