Concert: Love Tokens

 

Love Tokens

Joe Chindamo, piano & Zoe Black, violin

This concert celebrates the unbreakable bonds we create throughout our lives, often despite the tyranny of distance and time. Love tokens are the gateways to our past and a reminder of those who have touched us most deeply.

Through his new set of compositions, Joe Chindamo with violinist Zoe Black explore what it means to attribute feelings to objects, or even to describe the object as the cause or inspiration of a feeling.

Lecture: Why we need a republic

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED AND MONIES WILL BE REFUNDED

 

Within the republican movement there is no discussion of the alternative models that might be offered to the electorate. Instead those supporting the change get lost in an internal squabble as to whether a President would be appointed or elected. Here is a way forward.

Join brilliant writer/conversationalist Rodney Hall, former chairman of the Australia Council in a vibrant discussion. Make sure you read up on the Constitution before you come!
