About the event

Round Table is a discussion night here at Petit Portál. Nothing is off the table, with weekly topics (this weeks' below!) ranging in theme from spirituality, to kink, to science, to art-- and everything in between; that we explore respectfully through our shared and differing viewpoints. Come, having explored the week's topic, or ready to! This season of Round Table is hosted and moderated by Ash Sanders! With event space host, Li Michelle.

This week's topic: Friendship

Besties. Boston marriages. Work wives. Platonic partnerships.

In this final installation of this season's Round Table, we’re talking all about friendship: What it means to us, how to find it, what it feels like to lose it, and how it changes as we age.

We’ll talk about the growing importance of friendship in a world where people are increasingly lonely. We’ll talk about what it might look like put friendship on par with romantic and family relationships. We’ll talk about friendship, breakups and late-in-life friendships, and how to make friends as adults. We’ll talk about queer friendship and chosen family, and what we want from the people we love, whatever form that takes.

So come, discuss. And come give me a kiss before I move back to New York!

About Ash:

Ash Sanders is a journalist, audio producer, and creative who writes about place, environment, religion and mental health. She's also an erstwhile climate organizer and performance artist who creates circles for processing public or political grief. As a young weirdo trapped at BYU and looking for her people, she started a weekly discussion night on art, politics, and psychology that turned how she saw the whole world on its head and introduced her to the fellow seekers and loveable freaks of Provo. Since then, you can find her organizing salons and elaborate theme parties here in Utah or in her other home in Brooklyn. Oh, and rest assured: she'll never miss an opportunity for an around-the-room question.
