About the event
How can we improve the city we live in?
Why do we feel crappy when our work doesn’t align with our values?
What sort of cultural changes are important for the improvement of our society?
Have you ever had those philosophical thoughts during a shower, or a 2am sleepless night solving world problems? Well, perhaps this is your Rubik’s Cube moment. As a group, we can start answering these questions by exploring the culture of Sydney.
To examine these philosophical questions, we invite community members from Sydney to join us on this action-focused discussion. Come in for a casual chat, and participate in an open-forum style, thought provoking conversation. Meet other thinkers, and community members from diverse backgrounds, getting together for a meaningful chat!
The evening will be facilitated by fellow peers volunteering their time; opening these important discussions that are generally left ignored. For the first time, we would like to invite the broader community to join us! This event is suitable for anyone wishing to contribute to the discussions about community mental health, geared towards culture change.
