Learning From Social Movements

Thursday 12:00pm / Performance Theatre 1
2 Hours

Panel - Learning from Social Movements

Culture happens in a society. Our society is dominated by power structures: class, wealth and power. But social movements, including unions and environment groups, have been working for change. How can culture work with other like-minded groups in civil society to push back against neoliberalism, and to rebuild a social consensus in favour of reconstructing the welfare state, protecting the living wage, ensuring good jobs for all, and a vision for the public sphere?

Featuring: Louise Tarrant (United Voice / A24), Tim Lyons (ACTU and industrial relations organiser) and Patrick Simons (Yes 2 Renewables)

Facilitated by: Ben Eltham
