Has 2018 been kind to you? Or should the question be "have I been kind to 2018"? As we pull out our fairy lights and dust our Christmas tree hidden in the far-end of our storage space, ready for the new year, it's about time to also slow down and self-care.

Sonder Soiree
/Sonder/ the realisation that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as one’s own.

This event has 2 parts for the night— the conversation segment (ticketed) and the shopping segment (free for all!).
