2970° The Boiling Point - Practising Democracy

The Arts Centre Gold Coast Presents
2970° The Boiling Point – Practising Democracy
7-9 September 2017

Calling all disrupters, thinkers, activists and provocateurs. Join some of the world’s most compelling thought-leaders and cultural performers for two days and take a proactive seat at the roundtable of Practising Democracy

Four Provocative Speakers

2970° The Boiling Point features two days of four world-class keynote speeches, expert responses and moderated roundtable thought leadership discussions.

Each keynote speaker will ignite our democratic instincts with some massively big ideas. In the spirit of practising democracy, the General Assembly will be asked to vote on a rule, law or protocol proposed by these four provocateurs.

Assange

Julian Assange
Julian Assange is the world’s first true internet radical; a publisher and activist who used the internet to transform the relationship between the weak and the powerful.

Ishiguro

Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro
Hiroshi Ishiguro is not your usual scientist. As one of the world’s foremost experts on robots and androids, when he was growing up in Japan he wanted to be an oil painter.

Kathy

Van Badham
Van Badham is a Melbourne-based feminist writer, theatre-maker, critic, trade unionist, activist, occasional broadcaster and one of Australia’s most controversial public intellectuals. Van is a political columnist and culture critic for The Guardian Australia and is Vice-President of MEAA Victoria as well as being the award-winning writer of more than 30 internationally produced plays for stage, music theatre and radio.

Slabb

Kyle Slabb
Kyle Slabb is often found sifting through the wreckage at the collision point of two cultures. With ancestral ties crossing Gudjinburra, Bundjalung and Yugambeh (and a few others you’ve probably never heard of), Kyle credits Indigenous cultural frameworks and intelligences as being at the heart of success.
