Social Muscle Club

Presented by PushPush Film & Theater,

Hosted by SeedWorks Artists


What if...

giving, receiving, communication, and commitment

were social muscles that could be trained?

SATURDAY NIGHT, MAY 18, 2019 | 7:00PM - 10:00PM  | $10-$25 Pay-What-You-Can

3726 E Main St, College Park, GA 30337

At Social Muscle Club you meet new people and take part in a simple sharing game, in which each person offers something to give away, and requests something to receive. These unconditional offers and requests can be for something material or practical -- from fresh bread to a holiday apartment in Costa Rica. It can be something abstract or relationship focused, like tips on resilience or stress release. The giving and receiving happen around tables, amongst performance, music, food, and surprises. It’s a real celebration, like an exuberant wedding or a chaotic game show!

This special Social Muscle Club, part of the SeedWorks C.A.K.E. Artist & Investor Summit will be focused on advanced artists and their projects.


Table snacks provided by Kushina Catering


Social Muscle Club is a group of global artists working together since 2012 to change our usual habits of thinking and doing and 'train the social muscle'. The club was founded for everyone in our global village seeking to support each other in an often isolated society.  The club began in a Berlin living room and was inspired by a documentary about a workers club in Sheffield that promised 'entertainment and mutual support'.


As a contrast to stress and pressure to conform to a capitalistic and competitive world, the club offers a self-organized social net. The Berlin founders of Social Muscle Club experienced personally the psychological effects of pressure to succeed, earn money, and fit in society. So they began practicing “giving and receiving” with friends and colleagues in their living rooms to support each other. Since 2012 the club has grown exponentially and has reached thousands of people in ten international cities, including ongoing clubs in Berlin, Basel, Bristol, and Vienna.  The club integrates people from different social backgrounds as well as people who normally don't visit or participate in the theatre scene, out of which a growing international network of solidarity has been established.


Individuals with passions and a desire to share curate tables, offer presentations and engage in fellowship with their community. Everyone is invited to give and receive!
