An Exquisite Conversation features a panel of three or four invited guests leading an improvised discussion on topics prompted by a three-word phrase or ‘exquisite corpse’ generated from random configurations of attendee-contributed content.

The aim of the event is to explore not just built infrastructure, but the structures built into discussion itself. By using this new method of generating discourse, which undermines any attempt at apodictic exchanges, we hope to foster a platform where minds from all professions and skill sets can be both disruptive outsiders and constructive contributors.
