Hey everyone! We’re coming in hot with another IN PERSON Table Topics, and this time, we’re in Montréal, where Apathy is Boring was founded 18 years ago!
The theme of the next Table Topics is Building Trust and Disrupting Cycles.
The election cycle can often feel like just that –– a cycle; a wheel of recurring events that continuously spins whether we willingly engage with it or not. So is there any point to engaging with this spinning wheel? (spoiler alert, we think yes!)
Whether you feel that institutions are untrustworthy or that nothing ever changes, you’re not alone. Many of us feel a sense of powerlessness when it comes to participating in democracy, and research shows that this sense of powerlessness often comes from mistrust of our institutions or feeling like our actions are inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.
Join us on November 20th in Montreal for a post-election conversation where we’ll collectively reflect on ways we can disrupt the spinning wheel, rebuild trust, and start creating OUR version of democracy…But of course, we’ll be doing this over brunch.
How it works
Step 1: Register before November 16th, 2022, and don’t forget to tell your friends to register as well!
Step 2: Show up to Afromusée at 11AM. We’re excited to be partnering with Afromusée in order to host this conversation in a space that helps improve cultural and civic narratives by telling Afro-Canadian stories through art and history.
Step 3: Listen. You’ll hear from an incredible panel of speakers who have been active champions of democracy in Montreal.
Step 4: Chat over brunch. After hearing from our panel, you’ll chat with the folks at your table about what you heard. And if having great conversations about democracy in an Afromuseum isn’t enough to convince you, come for the iconic brunch box catered by Foodie Fruity.
Step 5: Tell us what you think of Table Topics. We would love to hear your thoughts and any feedback you may have! What did you love? What could have been better? Fill out our survey and sign-up for our (totally optional) focus groups.
This event is designed for Canadians 30 and under. If you're over 30, you can sign up, but priority will go to younger folks. This event is free to attend, but all attendees must register by November 18, 2022.
