Do you accommodate allergies and food sensitivities?
Absolutely! One thing you might not know about Nurture is the fact that allergies and food sensitivities are accommodated with the opposite approach those of you who need to eat this way might be used to. Cardboard baked goods, fruit plates and soy substitutes will never grace your plate at Nurture. Instead, we get really passionate about working with restrictions in such a way that an attendee with limited food options feels NO limits at the table. A custom version of everything you see on the menu will be yours to enjoy.
Is it assigned seating? How does seating work? What if I’m bringing a friend?
When you register for your ticket(s), you’ll be sent a brief questionnaire where you get to elaborate about who you are, your creative projects, etc. We take great care to get to know about our attendees so that we can seat you intentionally close to people we think you’ll be inspired by or make a particular connection with. If you bring a friend or partner, we usually seat you across from one another so you both have new people on either side to get to know, as well as one another.
Is it okay to come alone? What if I’m a bit shy?
When you walk in the door, you are family. These dinners were built specifically and intentionally as the antithesis of the antiseptic, socially awkward wine & cheese mingling events where people pass out pitches and business cards. We’re all about an evening where you don’t have to hide behind a veneer of having it all together, but get to show up as yourself and gather with others who are also invested in the same. We have had a few people attend who would admit to being very shy, all of whom remarked on how welcome they felt and how easy it was to connect with others.
Do you have a cancellation policy? What if something comes up and I can’t make it?
We recognize that outer circumstances beyond your control sometimes happen and are always sorry to miss having you at our dinners when that is the case. If you can find someone to take your place, we are happy to offer a full refund, minus a small processing fee.
Otherwise, we are unable to offer refunds or honour tickets for future events due to a combination of two key factors:
1) The perishable nature of the food items purchased for each dinner, which much of the ticket price goes towards.
2) Our limited-seating venue charges per person. That being said, we would love to offer you a 50% off code to attend a future dinner, if that is the case. Simply message us through Artery or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send it to you!
