Speed Date for New Members
Wednesday, 16 August 2017
6.30 – 8.30 pm
Our old and new ESP members went on a series of speed dates and met our new ESP & Public Programmer Amelia. Conversations flowed around each other’s interests and practices. Following a rapid-fire speed date structure, ESPer’s had five minutes to get to know each other, before moving on to the next date. Both sessions had a different focus and a limited number of places.
New members who’ve joined in the last year or so participated in a speed dating session that focused around making new connections. This was a chance to meet other people fresh to ESP and to start new conversations. In order to begin getting acquainted we asked everyone to bring a food contribution that said something about them (a cake in the shape of a cow, hummus flavoured with peanut butter). The food became part of the dating process and was shared as a meal.
