The Answers You Need
GATHERINGS DURING THE PANDEMIC: WHAT HAS CHANGED?
WHAT’S NEW FOR THE HOSTS?
We’re only looking at commercial spaces for now, for safety reasons. The space will only have 50% occupancy, and 25 people max. The concept of “secret location” is temporarily discontinued. In exchange for the two hours rented for gatherings, we will be promoting you and your space.
WHAT’S MY JOB ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER?
You simply have to bring your cool vibe, and help the host in setting up the lights and seating arrangement before the gathering. Then, all you have to make sure is that the show runs smoothly. We would highly recommend to attend the gathering as a guest first and then apply to volunteer so that you’re able to understand everything :)
WHAT’S NEW FOR THE ARTISTS?
Nothing, really. Everything will function in the same way as always. For more artist-related queries, refer to our artists-related FAQs below.
WHAT ABOUT POTLUCK?
Potluck will have to be temporarily discontinued as well, as it might be a little unsafe.
WHY HAS THE GATHERINGS’ DURATION BEEN REDUCED?
Without potluck, a 3-hour gathering can make people hungry. We have reduced it to two hours so that people can go eat before or after the gathering.
WILL WALK-INS BE ALLOWED?
Just like before, walk-ins will not be allowed. Booking are to be done online as usual.
I’VE APPLIED AS A HOST/ VOLUNTEER/ ARTIST. WHAT NOW?
Make sure you’ve updated your profile with all necessary details. Sit tight, we will get back to you as soon as we see an available slot.
ABOUT MOTOJOJO GATHERINGS
WHAT ARE MOTOJOJO GATHERINGS? HOW SAFE ARE THEY?
Our gatherings are unlike any other gatherings in the whole of India. They were created to bring the best things of this world- art, music, stories, conversations, and good food- all under one roof. This is done through our normal gatherings, Ghumakkadi Kalakaar gatherings, and Kitchen Gatherings. A maximum of 30 people can attend a gathering.
All these gatherings are 100% safe. We’ve NEVER had a single complaint of any inappropriate or creepy behaviour either before, during, or after the gathering.
WHERE ARE MOTOJOJO GATHERINGS HOSTED?
Our gatherings are hosted in the warm, safe space of someone’s private property like homes, dance studios, meditation and yoga centers, etc. We NEVER go for commercial spaces because an intimate, homely, and warm vibe matters to us.
WHAT HAPPENS AT A MOTOJOJO GATHERING?
Travel storytelling, poetry, and original indie music over delicious food and interesting conversations with 25-30 strangers!
WHAT IS THE TIMING?
7:30-10:30 pm. But sometimes it can stretch out till 11/11:30 pm as well, which is why it is important to be punctual so that the event can start and end timely.
IS IT OKAY IF I REACH BY 8?
The timing for arrival of the attendees is between 7:30-8:00pm. No one is allowed after 8 PM. We appreciate punctuality because that way everyone gets to be present for the introductions, break the ice and get to know each other.
WHY DON'T WE HOST GATHERINGS IN A CAFE?
Motojojo gatherings are an intimate affair and cafes don’t really serve that purpose.
WHAT KIND OF PLACES ARE WE LOOKING AT FOR THE GATHERINGS?
Houses, dance studios, meditation centers, coworking spaces- basically non-commercial properties that give off an intimate and welcoming vibe.
