Unchatter: A Connection Experience in Christchurch

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description


The venue for this event is the Maker Workshop, located upstairs in the Arts Centre. There is generally ample street parking, but it's always a good idea to bike, carpool, or use public transport if you can. Just follow the hubbub once you get to the Arts Centre and we'll be waiting to greet you! 


It's time to celebrate! Unchatter is FOUR this year, and we never could have imagined the journey these past few years would bring. We have even more reason to celebrate this year - along with a new understanding of just how much we need real connection.

Interested in the latest psychology research on belonging and how you can utilize it to cultivate better relationships? Cool, we've got plenty of that to share with you. If you want to be thoughtfully led into meaningful conversations with strangers, this is your jam.

Whatever your motivation, come and join us for some soul-hugging, heart-growing, mind-blowing connection. We promise you'll leave with a grin.

About This Event

This is not your average party! You'll be entering a space where small talk is banned and deep questions give you street cred. We bring the questions and the food, you bring the open mind and curious heart.

Don't worry, you won't have to jump into the deep end straight away. We'll lay out a few party principles for the evening and ease you into the conversation with some cool connection games.

Need a break from the buzz? There's a quiet zone when you want some down time, and we'll have ultra-compassionate Connectors keeping an eye out for anyone who needs a conversation buddy. You'll get exactly what you need every step of the way.

This is a thoughtfully curated experience for introverts and extroverts alike. If you're a human and want to feel like you matter, this is the place for you.

What's Included
· Life-changing connection
· Fabulous food + drinks (non-alcoholic)


· What should I bring?
Curiosity, kindness, and an open heart.

· Do I need to print my ticket?
Just bring the email verification you received with the QR code. (Not to worry, we can still check you in manually if you forget!)

· What if I'm an introvert who hates parties?
No sweat! We've tailored every part of the evening to make you feel like you belong, whether you love all-night ragers or quiet corners. We'll be keeping a special eye out for folks who might be feeling awkward. The whole point of this event is meaningful connection, and we'll make sure you get it!

· What if I'm an extrovert who's a pro at this connection stuff?
Fabulous! The real magic happens when we've got a beautiful blend of personalities and connection styles. 

· Do I need to register or do you accept walk-ins on the day of the event?
Please register in advance, as we don't take walk-ins or sales at the door. We want you to have an experience that feels rich and meaningful, so we limit the number of attendees to make it an intimate gathering. This also allows us to reduce the time spent on check-in and jump right into the juicy stuff!

· What's the difference between waged, unwaged, and koha?
Waged tickets are for folks who are employed, and unwaged tickets are for students and those who aren't working full-time. You can also contribute a koha amount so we can provide tickets to people who wouldn't be able to attend otherwise. The experience is the same regardless of your ticket type; we just want it to be accessible for everyone.

· What if I can't afford a ticket?
Drop us a line and we'll make it happen.

· When should I arrive?
Doors open at 5:45. Please arrive in plenty of time to grab a beverage, get settled, and be ready to kick things off by 6:15. It's important to attend at the beginning when we set the stage for the evening.
