Please reply to the abridged version of The Questionnaire de Proust party game above in order to participate in a feel good art project that will be shown at the King’s College Cambridge Art Centre in November 2011, that’s next month!!! So please answer before FRIDAY 21st October.

Your answers can be personal or professional, light or deep, mundane or truly exceptional.

As the identity of the participants remains anonymous, contributions are open to interpretation, stimulating the imagination of the audience.

That is an integral part of the project.

I did a similar project in London and people from all walks of life contributed.

The anonymity element allows the contributors to be true to themselves at the source.

It also prevents the audience from making judgment based on gender, race and creed downstream.

Originally a party game from the French Belle Epoque era, Le Questionnaire de Proust gives great insights into the psyche of the respondents.

Marcel Proust, author of “In Search of Lost Time” made such an impact when he participated twice that the Questionnaire was named after him.
I will be honoured to share your words of wisdom.
