PERFORMANCE SPACE 122’S LONG TABLE SERIES

Performance Space 122’s Long Table series facilitates meaningful discussions between civic-minded New Yorkers connected by the ideas and questions surrounding New York City’s generative culture. Used as a tactic by think tanks, the startup community and the cultural sector, the Long Table format was first developed by director and scholar Lois Weaver as an experiment in participation and public engagement. The Long Table format is a dinner table atmosphere where all voices are encouraged to ask questions, make statements, leave comments, or simply sit, listen, and watch.

While the format doesn’t require a group conclusion, consensus, or action points, individual participants frequently walk away with a new perspective, a renewed direction for their work, and, most importantly, connections that foster collective growth surrounding each topic.

EQUITY

For the 2016/17 Season, four Long Tables will explore issues of equity surrounding the arts and its intersection with other sectors such as tech, labor, small business and the larger cultural sphere. Our hope is that the Long Table format provides a radically inviting approach to insuring all voices are given the power and opportunity to be heard.
