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 “Power”

“Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power.”
– Seneca

This month’s event will be mediated by Zan Boag, editor of New Philosopher magazine and the panelists will be Justy Phillips and Anna Reynolds.

Justy Phillips is one half of the duo (alongside Margaret Woodward) behind A Published Event – a collaborative art practice of speculative eventing which is driven by chance encounter, constructed situations and the shared authorship of lived experience. Justy’s most recent project is The People’s Library 2018, a contemporary artwork with a uniquely Tasmanian library at its core. Over 150 authors bring this performance library, located in the Long Gallery at Salamanca Arts Centre, comes to life through readings, discussions and live events.

Alderman Anna Reynolds, who is currently running for Mayor of Hobart. Anna was elected as an Alderman to the City of Hobart in 2014, and is also the Chief Executive Officer for the Multicultural Council of Tasmania. Previously she has been a travelling art teacher in Aboriginal communities in Queensland and NSW, established a regional community legal centre based in Cairns, ran the Australian Conservation Foundation’s Parliamentary Liaison Office, and established Australia’s first climate change community organisation in 1998 – the Climate Action Network Australia.
