Fishbowl discussion

Seven chairs are arranged in an inner circle (the fishbowl). The remaining chairs are arranged outside the fishbowl. Four invited panelists occupy four chairs in the fishbowl with three chairs remaining open to encourage participants from the audience to move into the fishbowl and join the conversation. The rest of the audience sits on the chairs outside the fishbowl. The moderator introduces the topic and the people in the fishbowl start discussing the topic with the audience outside the fishbowl listening in on the discussion until they feel moved to join the fishbowl and the conversation by occupying one of the two empty chairs.

One chair must remain open, which means that once a member of the audience joins the fishbowl by taking a seat in the empty chair, one of the other audience participants must voluntarily leave the fishbowl. The discussion continues with participants frequently entering and leaving the fishbowl.
