Conscious Dating: Race & Dating



WHEN: 7-8.30pm – 26 Apr 2017

COST: $30

TICKETS: General Admission

Conscious Dating Co explores what it means to date consciously in a series of panels and workshops. At 107 Projects in April we discuss attraction, racial bias and dating in Australia.

What influences attraction? Is racial bias affecting your dating life? How do you deal with being fetishised? And can we all expand our dating pool by mindfully inspecting our own racial biasses?

Conscious Dating Co founder Kaila Perusco will host a panel discussion with award-winning journalist, documentary filmmaker and host of SBS’s Date My Race, Santilla Chingaipe; writer and equal rights advocate Andy Quan; and applied sociologist Dr Zuleyka Zevallos.

Join us for a fascinating insight into modern dating!
