We have some brilliant panellists to help us explore the phenomenon which opinion polls, politicians and the media suggest is gripping our nation: the cult of negativity:


ABC radio broadcaster Kelly Higgins-Divine 

Greens Senator Larissa Waters 

Political commentator Dr Paul Williams 

When did our leaders stop knowing how to lead? When did we stop giving them the respect and authority to lead well? When did we stop being the nation of "fair go" and "she'll be right", and become a nation of Hanrahans? When Australia is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, why do so many of us feel we're struggling? And how do we rewrite the story to make a happy ending?


When: Monday, 30 July; 6pm - 8pm

Where: Bleeding Heart Gallery and Café, 166 Ann Street, Brisbane CBD

Cost: $20 including GST (FREE for Brisbane Institute subscribers)
