It could be a student, a member of staff or a graduate, the only thing they have in common at the beginning is Edinburgh. Sharing things also starts with an object. A special, treasured or significant item that we have asked each guest to bring to the conversation. The conversations are sometimes funny, sometimes moving and always unexpected.
