Gathering with Purpose: the Jeffersonian dinner
The tradition we now call Jeffersonian Dinners began at Monticello in the 1800s. Jefferson thrived on surrounding himself with a host of thought leaders and used his dinner table as the centerpiece for the free exchange of ideas and diplomacy. His predecessor, John Adams, is said to have quipped, “a dinner party is worth a thousand meetings.”
But there’s a rule with Jeffersonian Dinners – you must have a single conversation. You talk to the whole table and the whole table listens. No side conversations. The whole time. That’s 8 to 15 brains on one topic. It is powerful and unique.
These interactions are rich with what political scientist Robert Putnam calls bridging capital – connectedness between people across differences (as compared to the more common and easily achieved bonding capital.) Besides, conversations between people who are just the same are boring and they lack the creative tension that sparks ideas.
Our MAGSS Jeffersonian Dinners are carefully curated groups of no more than 15 deep, creative thinkers ready to engage with authenticity. Until we can welcome each other into our homes again, these will be virtual dinner parties, but the conversations will be just as invigorating and the guest list just as curated. Since the capacity for each event is by nature so small, you will complete a short form to apply for an invitation. Do not be surprised if something delightful shows up in the mail to make the experience extra special.
