Mystifying Melbourne: Silent Dinners

The Silent Dinner Project, created by artist Honi Ryan, is a truly unique dining experience designed to cultivate mindfulness and deeper connection through the absence of verbal communication.

Participants are strongly encouraged not to talk while sharing a meal, fostering a space for reflection, heightened sensory awareness, and meaningful connections beyond words.

This a work she has showcased across 20 cities across 12 countries, now into its 16th year.

Honi speaks with Aisha sharing the project's natural evolution, the different types of interactions across cultures and space, and what might be coming up next.
