Quite a large crowd gathered for a tour of the Submission Gallery at Cafe LaPe'rouse @ Austin on June 10, 2015.
Under the guidance of Ratzu, people selected one of the images that decorated the many floors of the gallery. Each image had quotes in them, and the participants were encouraged to discuss the meaning of the writings, in addition to their personal feelings about it.
I've found that the format of these discussions are always a welcome respite from the usual gatherings, where people simply sit down and discuss a specific topic. The informal nature of the activity, and the somewhat random selection of images to be studied and discussed, always makes for lively discussions.
As Ratzu himself pointed out at the start: "We also do not know what we will be talking about...so that makes it exciting."
