Detroit Research, Salon De’troit and the Scarab Club PRESENT
The Regular’s Table: a new monthly series of intimate, informal conversations.
The German word Stammtisch can be translated into English as “regular’s table.” It is an invitation to friends—to gather round a table and talk, philosophize, dream, rant, play cards. The regular’s table is a symbol of community and conversation.
Curated by Stefany Anne Golberg in collaboration with Detroit Research, Salon De’troit, and the Scarab Club, the Regular’s Table pairs Detroit artists, thinkers, and dabblers and asks them to talk to each other about subjects close to their hearts. It is a conversation between strangers on the way to becoming friends.
