These invites will be first come, first serve. I will be messaging the special RSVP link to you once you click "going" on this invite. So you need to check back often to look for the message here on the website or in your app. (this is time sensitive, once the link's RSVP quota is filled, it will shut off) *** When you get the invite link (1) you can choose up to 2 tickets but all the attendees must be over 21 & (2) you can choose either 6pm or 6:30pm - doesn't matter which. The event is from 6 - 9pm (the promoter added those choices in to get around an RSVP limit in the platform they are using). ------------------------------ Dave & Busters (at Hanes Mall) VIP event Please join us on Thursday, May 9th from 6pm-9pm for complimentary food and game play!

Human Library Winston-Salem - Real People Real Conversations

Venture Cafe Winston-Salem - Bailey Power Plant

Don’t judge a book by its cover | Real People, Real Conversations. Come visit The Human Library™ in Winston-Salem, NC on Thurs, May 16, 2019 hosted at the Venture Café Winston-Salem . This program is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge prejudices through dialogue. This is a project where real people volunteer as "books" to share their experiences with "readers" (attendees) to create a place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered. The volunteers have faced prejudice based on different aspects of their lives including: religion, ethnicity, gender/sexuality, heath issues, social status, lifestyle choices, disability, occupation, being victims and ideology. The conversations are ~20 minute session with your "book". Ask questions and get answers. Then review the other books available and continue the experience. The space will be open at 5 pm to review book descriptions and socialize. From 6 - 8:30 pm, the books will be available for conversations. This event is FREE and open to the public. Non alcoholic refreshments and snacks will be provided. ► Please click this link if you are interested in sharing your experiences as a "book" or if you'd like to volunteer: https://goo.gl/forms/AVFNxGhCw2nJ4Tdd2 -------------------------------------------------------- ► PARKING information for Venture Café: https://www.venturecafewinstonsalem.org/programming/parking/ The entrance to the Venture Café will be marked for the event.
