West-Tea Talks - The Westies

The Westies “West-Tea Talks” series serves up high tea with another community member. Using specially developed questions, it’s a conversational tool designed to find commonalities and connection through shared stories.

Community members are randomly paired to engage in conversation with an aim to connect and build a relationship with a complete stranger. Participants gain empathy for each other as well as recognise the power of telling their own story. 

The Westies can customise the event to suit the audience you are engaging with.

Example questions: 

-When was the last time you felt a strong emotion?

-What does love mean to you?

-What is a struggle you have overcome? 

-What’s an activity you do to care for your mental health?
