Discourse Karaoke

Part of Discourse and Discord: Architecture of Agonism from the Kitchen Table to the City Street

The evening starts with a chalkboard mixer where people pair up with a stranger to discuss the following:

  • Describe a political issue that is not black and white to you. Describe one that is.
  • How do you think race affects politics?
  • Which candidate (local, national, historical) do you most identify with and why?
  • What do you think is the biggest threat to our society?
  • What influences your political beliefs the most and why?

Each partner chooses the other’s answer that they think is the most interesting. Each person then writes their answer on a 5 x 7 inch mailing label and wears it for the rest of the evening.

Karaoke ensues for the remainder of the night from a selection of classic and contemporary protest/patriotic/political songs. Duets and larger singing groups are encouraged.
