Each month a small group of us we will choose a short artistic piece (spoken word, poetry, painting, to view on-line and consider before our picnic in the Royal Botanic Gardens, weather permitting, or the gardens cafe.

This is not purely an intellectual exercise but a gateway into sharing of each others' interests, passions and world views. It is a spin-off from the AllInTheMind meetup group where we tried a similar idea based on works from Ken Nordine and Brian Eno.

Rather than assigning roles for the food (eg you bring bread, she brings cheese, he salad etc) everyone is encouraged to bring a meal for themselves with the option of sharing. Some people may bring unsharable items like sandwiches because of very specific dietary requirements and that is fine too: we will be happy for them to just share their company and thoughts. As we get to know each other over the months we may start co-ordinating the food a little more.

Because the group sizes will deliberately be kept to an intimate size of about a dozen, please honour your RSVP so that others do not miss out unnecessarily.
