Activity: Deep Conversations Dinner

Brussels: Tuesday, 17 May 2022

Bored with small talk at social activities? If so, come join us for a Deep Conversation Dinner where you sit down to a meal with an interesting stranger, skip the small talk and immediately dive into a deep, inspiring, thought-provoking conversation. You will get to know a fellow human being with a different background from your own as well as share your own thoughts, experiences and ideals with her/him.

The concept is simple. After a brief introduction, you will be paired up with someone you don't know and given a set of thoughtful questions to ask each other over dinner. After ordering your meal, you sit down at a table and choose a question to ask your conversation partner and ask. You can follow up with more questions and take the conversation in any direction you wish and are comfortable with. Then, your conversation partner asks you the same question. Continue this way for about 90 minutes -- and you and your conversation partner can continue your conversation afterwards, if you like. 

After about 90 minutes, we will gather together again for a debriefing and feedback session.

The Deep Conversations Dinner will be held at The Sister Café in the centre of Brussels. They offer a selection of dishes, many vegetarian and vegan, as well as beer, wine and soft drinks. Please order at least a drink and ideally a meal or a snack.

Help Us Promote Deep Conversation Dinners

If you have participated in a Deep Conversation Dinner or workshop and enjoyed it, please tell friends about it. The success of the Deep Conversation Dinners is dependent upon having a wide variety of participants (so we can pair you with a conversation partner who is different from you). So, the more new people who join us, the better the conversations.


The Deep Conversation Dinner will be overseen by Imagination Club founders, Jeffrey Baumgartner and Andy Whittle.

Deep conversations is inspired by Oxford University professor Theodor Zeldin's Conversation Dinners and Vienna Coffee House Conversations (also inspired by Professor Zeldin's concept).
