Hi! These days everyone is talking about ‘connection’, but very often is seems more like a slogan than an actual end goal.
So what does ‘Connection’ really mean, and what does it look like in your own life? Or in your community? Or in the world at large?
In a world saturated with information, how do we find meaning that is relevant to us and make sense of it all?
Are we small humans actually able to make a difference to the big picture? What are the major blockers to social change? And how difficult is it for comfortable people to affect change if that change makes them uncomfortable in the short term?
These are just some of the challenges facing ordinary humans on the brink of crisis.
While we struggle to negotiate change at a global level – how do we affect change locally?
Why is it that so many of us who would profess liberal humanitarian values would object if a homeless shelter was erected in our street?
While its all good to talk about change, what does it actually look like, and how do we make the jump across to new ways of thinking and of living?
Just what do the politics of social change actually look like – and does the revolution really happen from within?
Join me in conversation with three challenging and inspirational…and at times very Funny thinkers: Alan Clements, Helena Norberg Hodge and Mark Swivel.
Hope to see you there! [8pm, Saturday, 28 November, at Club Mullum, aka Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club), tix $10 at the door (opening at 7pm), with all funds raised going to the Mullumbimby Neighbourhood Centre’s More than a Meal program]
