Modern Love

Modern Love Lessons at The School of Life Melbourne

This event has finished

The School of Life plays host to a lively exploration of modern love and modern relationships on Friday 15 February, a day they're dubbing the Boxing Day of St Valentine’s.

Items on the love agenda include a "conversation cafe" where guests select a discussion topic from a conversation menu, a digital matchmaking photo booth with a philosophical twist, themed cocktails, a love confessions booth, love karaoke and the evening’s signature experience, The Museum of Lost Loves where guests will be invited to bring along a ‘hArtefect’ for the museum and share its story.

“We’re inviting people to bring along their own hArtefacts for the museum, which will be overseen by our resident anthropologist, and to browse others’ love artefacts and interact with their stories. It should be a lot of fun, and no doubt quite moving and revealing too,” says Marissa Cooke, co-founder of Four and Half Walls, a live arts and exhibition organisation presenting the evening.

The idea is that, what with the fickle way of modern love, most of us will accrue a number of hArtefacts over the years, objects and 'relics' from previous relationships, each object with its own "love story".
So be brave and bring along that special piece of jewellery, tha breakup mix-tape, or a print out of that one defining Google Chat conversation saved your hard drive.
