2970° The Boiling Point Practising Democracy

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

In 2016, Western democracy turned somersaults.

Brexit, Trump, the rise of Le Pen and populist nationalism in Europe.

Rather than fixating on the noise, 2970° The Boiling Point Practising Democracy goes deep into the quietude by listening to some smart people suggest provocative ideas for how we might make a future we want to live in.

not yet it’s difficult will invite a General Assembly of delegates to vote on rules, protocols or laws proposed by local, national and international speakers to ignite our democratic instincts with humour, intelligence and some massively big ideas.

A rich artistic program will speak to and amplify our discussions. It will also incorporate streams of inquiry generated from the 2015 edition and stimulate strategies for taking ideas from 2017 into concrete projects leading into 2970° 2019.

You are invited.

Full program and registration details coming soon…
