Dinners with a Difference - Creativity

Price $57 – $75 AUD + BF Get tickets

Event description

Dinners with a Difference is a facilitated discussion over a meal that dips beneath the surface of everyday conversations.

Come solo or bring a friend that you'd like to get to know better. 

This month's topic is CREATIVITY

Creativity is a fountain of inspiration that enriches our lives, offering innovation, beauty, and expression. For some, it serves as the guiding force propelling us through the canvas of our existence, igniting sparks of imagination and ingenuity. Yet, others may feel stifled, uninspired, and uncertain about tapping into their creative potential.

 The dynamics of creativity are fluid, shaped by our experiences and inner musings. The methods we employed to nurture creativity in our youth may not always suffice as we navigate the complexities of adulthood. Fostering and sustaining a creative spirit demands courage, dedication, and a deep appreciation for the delicate dance between discipline and spontaneity, all while acknowledging the influence of life circumstance.

This dinner is a warm invitation to those intrigued about the role that creativity plays in their world. Together we'll explore whether creativity is important and the role is play in our modern lives. How do we cultivate and amplify our creative energies? How do we navigate the ebbs and flows of inspiration that inevitably accompany the creative process? Is the experience of creative expression different for each of us? How do we break free from the traditional notions of creativity? How do we gracefully embrace the evolution of our creative endeavours, knowing when to adapt and when to release?


Your ticket includes a selection of entrees and mains, with dietary needs thoughtfully catered for. Drinks will be available for purchase on the night, ensuring a well rounded dining experience. To enrich the conversation, a prerequisite questionnaire will be emailed to attendees the week before the event. We kindly ask that you complete the short form prior to attending.

With the entire restaurant exclusively reserved for our dinner, we'll have the freedom to express ourself authentically and engage in vibrant dialogue without hesitation. 


Feedback from previous participants

"Dive in and give it a go. So worthwhile, stimulating and full of insightful conversation."

"A great night where you get to eat delicious food with a diverse array of interesting people all open to deep conversations. As well as the deep thoughtful conversations, there are always loads of laughs."

"It’s an opportunity to drop your guard - the normalities of day to day, and any roles/responsibilities. It’s quite liberating to discuss meaningful topics as a (relatively) anonymous person and speak truthfully without a filter. How bloody refreshing!"

"Chatting with random strangers was really fun."

"As a young Aussie guy, most of the conversations I have are surface level, sports-based, or just entirely sledging, which I love, but I don't really have the opportunity to philosophically explore topics or share meaningful (and related) anecdotes in a respectful forum where I could be challenged, encouraged and introspective, just for the sake of good conversation.
Finding good chats as an adult gets harder and harder, but this took me back to being freshly 18 and enjoying that good old Aussie tradition of a drunk 'DnM' (Deep and Meaningful). Happy to be philosophical and vulnerable - cracked open emotionally and intellectually - only now a little less drunk and much more comfortable."

"Gretel creates a safe and inclusive space where people can be seen and heard amongst a group of complete strangers! Conversation is gently guided with good humour with a nod to complexity and nuance. Dialogue is liberated and reinvented in a fun and casual atmosphere."

"So, those questions you have about the way the world is right now, and your place in it, and how you would like people you can share that with, and how you are feeling about all that? Bring all of it. That's what Dinners with a Difference is for."
