[Phnom Penh, evening. A party. A roof.]
DK: I had been to the venue before, it was perfect. The last few times, though, it had been banal and useless, the usual smalltalk. What if we could talk about philosophy? What if people who wanted to talk about life, the universe, space, origins of stars, metaphysics, existentialism, the meaning of it all, what if they found me because we put the call out there, the call for interest? That was this. That was rooftop philosophy. I met a dozen people through this unusual form, and two of them I now consider real… friends.
DK: This was the invitation:
MEET ME IN THE SKY?
Metaphilosophy and metaphysics, with clouds!
Get together with a very small group of people to talk about things that feel more interesting than the usual drone of: ‘How long have you been in Phnom Penh?’ (yawn); ‘What do you do here?’ (Why? Are you job hunting?); ‘Where are you from?’ (How about ask me where I’m local?). The ‘Rooftop Philosophy in Phnom Penh’ salon is limited to just a few people and small and informal in style. Share your availability with DK by email and we’ll choose a date and time that works for most. Guided, prompt-led conversation. No experience or expertise necessary. Proficiency in English is best, but all are welcome. Light, relaxed, nice view. How to design space for great dialogue? Conversations that, I promise, will veer far from the vein of the above. That is the work of DK. The participation fee is USD $15 per person. Book your ticket to confirm your spot. Max 6.
