CARE 2 CONVERSE

Care 2 Converse was created to inspire community conversations. Essentially Care 2 Converse involves people wearing a visual symbol which shows the people around them that they are open to having a chat. As more people wear the symbol more conversations could spontaneously occur. Even just wearing the symbol will make a big difference! Simply by seeing someone else who “Cares to Converse” you already have a sense of connection even without conversation.

A VISUAL KINSHIP

A Sea of Strangers

As you commute around Sydney city do you notice the stares and a scarcity of smiles? "Care to Converse" is about creating a visual symbol to show support for casual conversation and community.

Start a Conversation

We live in close accessible communities and yet we do not know the people who travel in the same space as us. "Care to Converse" is a visual way to start casual conversations.

Break down barriers

Wearing the symbol will make a big difference! Simply by seeing someone else who “Cares to Converse” you already have a sense of connection even without conversation.

Bring back community

This will take shape in a wearable symbol that says “Care to Converse?” Start having casual conversations without the awkwardness.

What is Care 2 Converse?

Care 2 Converse was created to inspire community conversations.

Taking part will mean you get to wear awesome gear stating that you “Care to Converse,” like a badge or wristband. The idea would be for everyday people to enjoy conversations with strangers (minus the awkwardness). By wearing the #Care2Converse symbol, people will know you are up for the chat. It’s also an opportunity to share Care to Converse with others who might be keen to join in. Opportunities for conversations are everywhere, whether you are on the bus, in the queue at the grocery store or waiting for your morning coffee. Will these casual conversations brighten up your day? Only one way to find out, make the commitment today!

This project is a way to create real community, connection and of course conversation. On those days you don’t feel like it, you can always take off the symbol (unless you’ve signed up for the pledge!).

How does this work?

Each ‘Care to Converse’ purchase through the shop will contribute to funding the cause. The more sales, the more FREE bands, badges and other goodies to give away to you, awesome agents of change! When you commit to the pledge, we will send you your choice of awesome Care to Converse paraphernalia!
