Join the dinner table with Sydney Muse and start some new conversations!


What if you had the opportunity to have a meaningful exchange with a stranger and spark a new relationship, new ideas, and new outlooks on life? Would you take it? We invite you to step outside your comfort zone and be open to not only learning more about another person but also about yourself.!


Following on from the success of our first event in 2017, Sydney Global Shapers invite you to come dine with us at the Feast of Strangers!

The Feast of Strangers is an event based on an original idea by Oxford scholar Theodore Zeldin.


The events pair two strangers together for sincere, rewarding exchanges that probe beyond small talk. You are each given a ‘Menu of Conversation’ but instead of descriptions of food dishes, each heading contains topics to talk about, 25 in all. A ‘Muse’ then introduces the meal and explains how the evening will work, which can take about two hours.

The cost of your ticket goes towards covering venue hire and providing dinner.
Drinks and other non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase during the evening.

Be sure to book early as capacity is limited!






Pocket City Farms is a productive hub the local community can gather to learn about all things farming and food growing, buy local produce grown with organic principles, participate in the volunteer program, and take part in many workshops and events.

In the surrounds of their productive green space in the city Pocket City Farms run regular workshops across a range of sustainable lifestyle topics from growing food in small spaces to native stingless beekeeping, and wooden spoon carving to natural indigo dyeing.

They hold monthly crop swaps with Crop Swap Sydney for trading home harvests, as well as weekly volunteer sessions enabling you to dig your hands in the soil and learn food growing skills direct from the farmer. Meanwhile you can also take a yoga class outdoors overlooking the farm, or bring the kids along for a Little Farmers session.

The produce from their ecological market garden is available each week at the Pocket City Farm Store, along with other goods from local producers, including organic sourdough and local tea.
