Friends’ Conversation Evening- on the theme of 'Utopia'
We’re often advised not to daydream too much and to focus on the here and now instead. However, many of us have an active side of our minds which loves to dream up better worlds and think of how to improve society. This is an occasion to share our visions and projects for the future. What should children ideally be taught? How should marriage work? How might cities and homes be better arranged? It’s a chance for our suppressed utopian sides to reveal themselves and hear from others.
About Friends’ Events
Membership of our Friends’ scheme gives you access to a year-long series of monthly conversation drinks, each one anchored around a big idea we’ll discuss over drinks and food. On the second Friday of every month, we come together in a central London venue with other members of the diverse and bright community of the School of Life. At every event, you’ll be offered a conversation menu and systematically (and entertainingly) introduced to everyone else in the room. If you enjoy our work, you will find kindred spirits. The evenings are guaranteed to be stimulating and reassuring - as well as prompts to genuine connection and insight.
The first friends event is free upon joining. Each month we’ll explore a different theme, starting with School and moving on to What’s the Point of It All?, Secrets, Resolutions, Love, Family, Hope, Work, Confessions, Taboos, The Body, and Utopia.
