28 SDPs have been held in 8 countries. They propel us into the moment and offer a chance for us to connect in real space amidst a world mediated by words and images, at once highlighting cultural differences and revealing a base humanity. They offer the participants a chance to strip quick judgements and shuffle social hierarchies as being without words really does alleviate a major part of our cultural identity.



And most commonly, they are a grand silent giggle! Go to the SDP website here.
