The launch of Taboo Talk was held on Monday 30 January at Google HQ in Pyrmont, Sydney.
Taboo Talk is a real-life platform for people to come together and talk about pertinent issues in a brave space with trained facilitators.
The aim of the initiative is to open discussion about topics that affect all of us.
Taboo Talk aspires to be a new, grass-root initiative for actual, social change.
The audience were welcomed by the founder of Taboo Talk, Amirah Amin. She presented the house rules and gave a warm introduction about the purpose and necessity of the initiative.
The event kicked off with a rather cute story of a young white elephant named Taboo.
Taboo Talk aims to bring people together, in a safe, non-judgmental setting, where we can speak freely about issues that are real and lived with the intent to share and learn from one another.
While these conversations may be taking place in some homes, streets or offices, Taboo Talk aims to break through these silos and bring people together to discuss these “taboo” issues.
This is our chance to tell new stories, in new ways and revive the true sense of community.
At the conclusion of the event, Creative Director, Chris Sulfa said, “Thank you so much to everyone who came and participated, expressed vulnerability, engaged in and helped to create the space for difficult conversations, it was very moving to see how well received the idea was and how effortlessly everyone invested themselves in it.”
