This is a performance of a dinner table conversation
Anyone seated at the table is a guest performer
Talk is the only course
No one will moderate
But a host may assist you
It is a democracy
To participate, simply take an empty seat at the table
If the table is full you can request a seat
If you leave the table you can come back again and again
Feel free to write your comments on the tablecloth
There can be silence
There might be awkwardness
There could always be laughter
There is an end, but no conclusion.
Lois Weaver conceived the Long Table in 2003 in response to the
divided nature of conventional panel discussions. The Long Table allows
voices to be heard equally, disrupting hierarchical notions of ‘expertise.’
