Morning Symposium – All are welcome!

9.30am to 12.30pm
Book your place via Eventbrite [coming soon!]

The morning session is open to all who are interested to come along and enjoy thought provoking presentations.

Invited speakers will present Six Provocations.  The provocations will be designed to be contradictory, challenging and sometimes confronting. Provocations will be framed within the following themes:

  • Relationism and Survivalism
  • Peace, Wisdom and Logic
  • Law, economics, the commons, the market and finance
  • Media, technology and communications
  • Male/female reconciliation, rapprochement
  • Pluralism, multi-polarity

These initial provocations will begin the process of building the parameters for the longer term Dialogue Series.

Numbers are limited to 50 people, so please send us your Expression of Interest (EOI) by 1st August

The afternoon session will build on the morning’s presentations and discussions.

The provocations will stimulate participants to analyse their own viewpoint and contribution to the new narrative.  Participants will be invited, through a facilitated process of discussion circles, to identify their own research project/s for the series.

Participants will be invited to participate in the multi-year Dialogue Series, to contribute ideas and papers throughout the series.
