PROPOSAL: TABOO: the discussion group.

Proposed by Ava Grayson

Recurring experiment. Meetings:

TABOO: the discussion group #1
already happened: 18 May 2017 18:00 — 20:00

Description:

I am interested in a monthly or twice-monthly discussion group that meets to open-mindedly talk about topics that are regarded with shame, disgust, or a high degree of discomfort in our society.

Some questions we could explore:

-What is the validity/invalidity of considering certain acts or thoughts taboo?
-What is the source of a certain taboo? Religion? Hygiene? Something else?
-What could be taboo in the future?
-What possible futures could exist without deeming certain things taboo?

***I expect that discussions will range from mild and anthropological to downright uncomfortable, so it's important that everyone wanting to participate be open-minded and respectful toward each other.

Goals:

-To provide each participant a chance to compare their own ideas of cultural and individual taboos
-To reconsider our individual knowledge, beliefs, and preferences in regards to taboo topics through researching and talking during these sessions
-To take the time to consider opinions that we may initially find weird, gross, etc.

Timeframe

Once or twice per month on a regular evening from 18:00-20:00.
