Table For 1200
Saturday May 31, 7:00pm
Table for 1200 is a fun and innovative opportunity to engage in a public conversation about the value of architecture, design and the design disciplines. At 365m long, it will be the world’s longest dinner table and a truly spectacular ‘pop up’ outdoor dining event that will attract the attention of media both locally and around the world.
Consisting of 150 tables of eight, Table for 1200 will invite representatives of the city government, prominent institutions, organizations and Winnipeggers alike to take a seat at the table and join in on a conversation about the importance of architecture and culture. It combines the closing RAIC Festival party with the final event of “Table for 12”, a series of dinners held in 8 cities around the world that sparked conversation about the importance of architectural culture.
Table for 1200 will highlight our city’s emerging design scene where architecture, design and the culinary arts are brought together to create an evening of entertainment and stimulating conversation in an absolutely unique setting.
