We set up a table and two chairs, with a table cloth and a victoria sponge, in the middle of a busy shopping centre in Exeter. Then one of us sat in a chair, and the other was left empty. It was a simple invitation.
Then we waited....
We were not selling anything, we had no agenda. We just wanted to see if someone, anyone, would sit and talk to us. Talk about anything, everything, or maybe nothing at all. If we were honest with ourselves, we did not expect anyone to sit down. And as you can see from the video, we were rather pleasantly wrong.
The conversations we had were open, friendly, surprising, funny, moving, thought provoking and, sometimes , rather lengthy!
