Chatter is an initiative aimed at: Initiating Communication Between Strangers
This concept was conceptualised during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic where social distancing was implemented and enforced globally. Where we felt guilty for visiting loved ones be it family, friends or acquaintances. We felt removed from what it was to be human before as communication is a basic human attribute, Talking To Strangers
This got me thinking… We are still surrounded by people whether we know them or not. They had been living through the same time period, feeling similar stresses and possibly just as socially anxious or needy as myself. So why not start a conversation with the person next to you in line at the supermarket a passerby or even a casual solo walker on the promenade.
In public spaces there have been ChatterBoxes installed in key areas. A Chatterbox consists of a 2m x 2m box on the ground with an ‘X’ in each corner to demarcate space for one another to still observe physical social distancing. On the ground, next to the Chatterbox is a sticker briefly inviting you and a stranger to partake in the social experiment.
So encourage you to get out of your comfort zones and chat to a stranger, you never know what fun a simple line of conversation could bring.
