      Citizens of the World: Workshops, Film and Panel

      Do you want to play a part in shaking up the status quo around climate, politics and society? Sometimes, it's hard to know where to start. Vivid Ideas and City Recital Hall are joining together to curate an evening of discussion and practical workshops.

      Panel Discussion and Film Screening
      Join The Possibility Project and Jess Miller with a panel of activists, young and older, who are leading the way. They'll inspire you to use your voice for change and to help solve problems that are seemingly beyond the power of one. Join this discussion and catch a special screening of the documentary Landfill Harmonic on the night.

      Venue: Auditorium
      Time: 6.30pm – 9.20pm (with a 20-minute interval)

She is currently a weekly political columnist and culture critic for The Guardian Australia. She has had more than 100 international productions of her work staged.
