Conversation is not a new idea but it’s a good idea. Conversations between interdisciplinary thinkers is good because we all think that we know heaps of diverse thinkers, but the fact is we talk to the same few bestie’s each week. Precipice posed a different series of questions to a group of people who didn’t really know each other about how we could re­imagine the City of Melbourne. We ate, wore stupid hats, drank wine and yelled.

Each event had a similar effect on us, a kind of confidence would build, a permission that led to radical thoughts. Let’s destroy the city, build it again…
Curated by Willoh S.Weiland these conversations take place in unexpected and inspiring locations around the Melbourne CBD. In previous meetings we have experienced dinner in a contemporary gallery, been deep under ground and even spent some time with Princess Diana’s private toilet.

More information on the project can be found through APHIDS online publication Post Impossible

Precipice was created with the support of the City of Melbourne through its Arts and Culture Triennial Program.
