Rebellion and Tomorrow
That we live in a time of constant change is beyond doubt. Many grand narratives that have shaped the modern world are beginning to crumble as their usefulness to contemporary society comes under serious question. Representative democracy, marriage, print media and so much more are in flux, being replaced by new paradigms.

What does it mean to live in such a time of change, on an individual level? Who are the agents of true rebellion that will shape the world of tomorrow? How is this information shared? Will today’s generations be able to build on the success of their predecessors, or are they being handed a poisoned chalice?

This dynamic and interactive event, presented in partnership with Next Wave Festival 2014, examines new grand narratives and how people experience rebellion, both politically and personally. How are ideas surrounding fundamental change progressed through our society?

We hear from six speakers – including Erik Jensen, Georgie Mattingley, Phuong Ngo and Sarah-Jane Norman – who will reflect on their personal experiences of climate change, family, media and history. In an innovative format, the debate will flow in the direction you wish to explore, a unique opportunity to help shape all our tomorrows.

A good event starts great conversations. Here’s your chance to stay back a while and meet the guest speakers. Nibbles provided. Drinks at bar prices.
