You are surrounded by people. You have hundreds of phone contacts, thousands of virtual friends, and you live in a city with a population of millions.
But you have no one to eat with.
Founded in 2012, TableTribes is an online/mobile platform that helps you FIND YOUR PEOPLE. By facilitating encounters over food and drink, we promote authentic relationship building and empower people to connect with others around them on a day-to-day basis.
TableTribes is the first proof of concept for Xuntora Labs, a research-driven initiative dedicated to the creation of empathy-activation platforms. Our mission is to maximize human potential by designing practical consumer-facing applications that specifically target core social intelligence skills.
The TableTribes Picnic Series is inspired by that unexpectedly magical moment when you’re with your friends at the end of a long evening. The lights are low, the conversation is sparkling, and everyone is feeling like they’re sharing a unique point in time. That’s where we begin.
Under a universal topic of exploration, guests and collaborators – including thought leaders, scientists, technologists, policy makers, chefs, bartenders, musicians, writers, academics, designers and artists – come together to search for the things we all have in common. With the simple formula of good food, good drink, and good people, we break down boundaries and bridge communities that might not normally cross paths.
The Picnic Series is a framework of offline engagement that showcases the values of authentic relationship building. Invitations are issued based on an application, with hard-hitting questions like how one’s life might taste as a pie. More information and photos can also be found on Facebook or Twitter.
There is a level of connectivity in the universe. That’s really what you want in life. You want to feel connected. You want to feel relevant. You want to feel like you’re a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you. That’s precisely what we are, just by being alive.Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson
