Bright Thinking* :

*Warning: thinking is dangerous

Bright Thinking* is a monthly discussion in the style of the French Café philosophique (“cafe-philo”) started by Marc Sautet in Paris.

The topic this month is“Freedom”

“If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.”
– Noam Chomsky.

“Man is born free, yet everywhere he is in chains.”
– Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

Are we free, or are we in chains?
How important is freedom of expression?
How much are our ideas and way of thinking influenced by the media?
What does ‘freedom’ mean to us?
Does our ‘freedom’ come at a cost to the ‘slavery’ of others?
How does it feel to be persecuted and have to flee your country, only to be locked up on the other side of your journey?

Panelists include Womankind magazine’s editor Antonia Case and Tasmanian Australian of the Year, humanitarian, asylum seeker support network founder, and author Emily Conolan.

Drinks and nibbles available to purchase at the bar.
