2008-10 Mix and Stir Format
For these two years the Salon was organized around a monthly theme with the following format:
- Take two conceptual ingredients (X meets Y, such as Affect meets Capital or Matter meets Making) and invite two or three speakers to each drop in one provocation, quandary, object, or image through which they are wrestling with the keywords.
- Ask each speaker to each serve their thoughts for 10 minutes of lively presentation (genre open, not a formal research overview so much as conceptual offering or provocation).
- Have 1 or 2 people stir vigorously to begin group discussion
- Enjoy results with food and drink
