SpeakEATsy is an experience – a happening – the core components are food; art; spoken word poetry; live musicians; a facilitated conversation with notable thinkers, writers or activists; and leading edge DJs to finish. Food, conversation and music are great ways to bring people together – SpeakEATsy emerged from a novel take on these simple ingredients and the desire to cultivate community.
