What we're about

Free Intelligent Conversation (FreeIC) is a movement dedicated to facilitating meaningful conversations between strangers. It is a movement for those interested in learning from everyone they encounter. It is a place for the curious, the jaded, the academic, the self-taught, the skeptic, and the believer. It is a movement for those looking to improve themselves and the world around them through meaningful conversations.


We hold up signs that read “Free Intelligent Conversation,” inviting people to talk to us about anything and everything.


We want to meet people and learn from them through meaningful face-to-face conversations. We believe that by continually seeking to learn from others we can improve ourselves, break down social barriers, and make the world a better place.

Meaningful Conversations With Strangers!

Lafayette Square

We hold up signs in cities and get strangers to talk to us. We learn things we never would’ve learned from people we never would’ve met. We talk about anything and everything, just for fun. Come join us! 🙃 We'll be meeting at the center of Lafayette Square, near the statue of President Andrew Jackson. We'll be out there for about 2 hours. Sometimes at the end of the day, we like to get together to eat and share stories/conversations from the day. 🍴 If you want to learn more about FreeIC, check out our website at: http://freeic.org/ We'll see you then! 🎉
