About the event

🖋️ We'll dive into the nuances of these concepts and examine questions like whether privilege automatically implies entitlement and what distinguishes someone who is spoiled as opposed to acting spoiled.

We'll embark on a journey of curiosity and self-reflection, fostering an environment where diverse perspectives are expected. Let’s engage in meaningful discussion, challenge assumptions, and gain a deeper understanding of these complex notions and how they may show up in our worlds.

The Speakeasy is a space to engage in the work of knowledge; it consists of asking the unasked question, holding space for diverse dialogue on issues of substance, and leaning into curiousity. The Speakeasy series: 

  • Donation based
  • Up to 1.5H; dependent on vibe of conversation
  • Facilitated by those that can hold space
  • Breakout rooms of up to 5 humans [if there are 8+ attendees]
  • ❇️ Bonus for continued connection

These sessions are for any human that wants to bring connection, satisfaction, and honesty back to their lives, relationships, communities, teams, and/or groups. These are spaces for people to delve into their own beliefs, stories, and understandings whilst in the company of others, globally, that want to elevate every slice of their life pie. With this in mind, it's vital that you if you register 1. please acutally join and 2. aim to join within the first 8mins. of the start time to maintain a level of safety virtually. 

The primary facilitator, Victoria Cumberbatch, has a penchant for Jeffersonian style conversations and this isn't the first iteration of her giving this a shot. She created a multi season web series based on the same premise, albeit it was filmed and in person. After C19 + van life + moving to Denver whereupon she knew no one, she chose to recreate an old goodie, but virtually. If you find yourself in this space and enjoyment/thrill/connection from it, please consider sharing with whomever would love something like this.
