Creation is groaning
Laden with weariness
Like a prisoner confined to shadows
Aching with indefinable loss
Haunted by elusive memories
Of a distant day of brightness
When nothing hungered
Join us for Create Night at Monument — next Wednesday at 7pm!
Bring your creativity (nascent, partial, imaginary); music, games, electronics, food, drinks, good mood, bad mood, rawr mood. All are welcome.
This week, we have a special addition to Create Night:
Exquisite Conversation is a relay of 19 minute one-to-one conversations among a rotation of participants. Come meet in the yoga room to record this experiment in measured, intimate dialogue. Each speaker is invited to engage in an un-scripted conversation with the one before them, and then in turn, speak with the next participant to come on to the table before they themselves rotate off. The result will be a long conversation between a large number of individuals, giving time and platform to each on an unguided journey through whatever comes up. A recording will be made of this zagging thought train and distributed to all participants and the Monument community. The only instructions are the over-arching and intentionally vague theme of “Now what?“. We hope and expect that the actual topics of conversation will vary wildly throughout the session. We would love if you came at 7 and stayed for the whole session, but you may also come later, or leave early or work on other projects at Create Night and rotate in (quietly! no door slamming!) throughout the three hour recording window.
