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 “Death”

“Life is long, if you know how to use it.”
– Seneca

This month’s event will be moderated by philosopher Alex Hinds, who will make you come face to face with your own mortality.

Joining Alex will be Leigh Connell, an “end of life doula” with over 30 years’ experience in the Community Sector working face-to-face with people with disabilities, those living with a mental illness, and people experiencing homelessness. As an end of life doula Leigh has been with parents who knew the prognosis for their young children was not for a long life and has supported others trying to make sense of a life-limiting diagnosis while trying to navigate adolescence. Leigh is a board member of Palliative Care Tasmania and a Hospice volunteer.

Also on the panel will be sociologist and writer Ruth Quibell to talk about her own close encounter with death.

Drinks and nibbles available to purchase at the bar.
