We are offering Digital Dine-Ins to groups of up to 10 people. Participants are invited to prepare a meal in their own home and then join us on a video call where they will have the opportunity to eat their meal in virtual community. Each Digital Dine-in will have a unique theme and will be led by two hosts. Dinner themes are chosen by the evening’s hosts so each experience will be unique and a reflection of the hosts’ imagination and experience. Add to the mix each unique guest and you can expect conversations that are fun, educational, creative, thoughtful and more. Dinner conversation themes could range from “art for justice,” “Indigenous food sovereignty,” “the global community,” “strengthening the local economy,” “Black and Latinx relationships,” and so on.
Are Digital Dine-Ins only for those in North America?
En Conjunto is U.S.-based and A Shared Table is Canada-based and as such we hold a commitment to creating an online dining experience that can be enjoyed by folks from around the world. If a dinner topic is going to be specific to a region, or the dinner is held in a language other than English, that will be noted on the registration page.
What does it cost to participate?
That’s up to you! For individual participants, the Digital Dine-In is a pay what you are able experience. All funds will be used towards the sustainability of this project: honoring the skills and labour of the Digital Dine-In dinner hosts and admin team.
If you want to schedule a private Digital Dine-In for your group or organization please contact us. We will work with you to curate a meaningful team building experience, including finding a topic and dinner hosts (experienced facilitators).
How do we promote braver and safer dinner conversations?
All of our dinner hosts are skilled facilitators and experienced in the art of hospitality. We support and resource our dinner hosts before and after their Digital Dine-In experience. We’ve also created Digital Dine-In Table Manners, which we invite everyone to review and practice during the dinners.
