On February 9th, 2014, we invited some of the most influential brands and talent in New York City to an experiential dinner at the Design Apart loft in Chelsea.
Visual storyteller Emilie Baltz, an award-winning author, speaker and teacher, created an evening of engagement and permission to play based on the principles of Sunday Dinner.
Limited to just 50 guests, Sunday Dinner took great care to curate the seating arrangements, placing people together to talk about things as diverse as music, ad models, Italian furniture, escaping from the badlands of Texas by jumping through a window of a moving car.....that was just some of the highlights.
Sunday Dinner is meant to provide a safe space for experimentation and idea sharing during these community events. Guests used no utensils, left with only their hands to taste and savor the food. From drizzled vinaigrette on hands to tartar tasting with your neighbor, all took a journey outside of their comfort zone to a realm of unexpected experimentation.
This action encouraged all to truly experience the food with multiple senses - much like the digital and experiential work we strive to create with our network companies.
And, we had Fruit Planets.
