Cities are machines that produce interactions among strangers—interactions that can be as lyrical and profound as they are singular and momentary. Significant things happen when we talk to strangers: we’re interrupting the expected narratives of daily life, shifting perspective, forming unexpected connections. And in a way, we’re waking up. This workshop sends participants on small, targeted missions to interact with strangers in order to experience this fundamental urban pleasure, and to learn about the unwritten rules that guide it.
