New York IRL: Expansive Conversations – Just Kids

Thursday July 18 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected

Join writer and meditation teacher, Grace Bialecki, for the next episode of a new New York City IRL series, ‘Expansive Conversations,’ where we’ll discuss poetry, authenticity, and self-actualization.

What adolescent explorations have stuck with you? As we reflect on the friendships of our youth, we’ll talk about how we see their reverberations in our current life. We’ll also read an excerpt from Just Kids by Patti Smith which explores her friendship with Robert Mapplethrope during the 60s and 70s in New York City.

There is such a thing as a life changing conversation. One that keeps reverberating with ideas and inspiration rippling through your body long after you’ve stopped talking. Often, these conversations come from unexpected places — a walk with a friend, an article in an old magazine, or a book you never planned to read. In this monthly IRL series, we’ll gather to read and discuss essays on aesthetics, creativity, and the artistic process. Through our conversations, we’ll explore bringing their ideas and new creative practices into our daily lives.

Recommended Readings:

The exact location will be shared via email and in the New York channel of the Interintellect community Discord.
