About Kitchen Table Conversations
Kitchen Table Conversations are simple and powerful – helping people discuss what really matters in a comfortable environment. Small groups have conversations based on focused themes. Participants might be friends, neighbours, family, workmates or people known from community networks. The conversations are usually shaped around starter questions.
Everyone is welcome to participate.
Normally these would take place in our homes, but during Covid we’re taking to the powers of Zoom so look out for our next online event. However if you feel comfortable, you can host your own – around your own kitchen table or wherever is comfortable for you. The only proviso is the place needs to be quiet enough for everyone to be heard easily.
The hosts facilitate a conversation for a couple of hours focused on the three themes included in this pack. Participants’ ideas and thoughts will be collated by the hosts and forwarded to the Voices of Warringah team for processing and integrating with all the other conversations throughout the electorate.
The Steps to Hosting a Kitchen Table Conversation
- Set a meeting date
- Invite up to nine friends/family/colleagues/neighbours/community members to your home or other suitable venue.
- Collect contact details for the group
- Facilitate the discussion
- Ensure there is a summary of the opinions and ideas of your group and that it is forwarded to the Voices of North Sydney committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Create a positive ripple – suggest that participants talk about their discussions and the ideas that emerged with other people at work or home or in their community.
