Conversations of Difference
In a time when there are so many stereotypes flying around, and social media judgment is all around us, I could not think of a better question and answers session than this discussion, as the topics that are being talked about are: mental health, education, immigration, gay rights, single parenting, cultural difference and more.
There will be political speakers, teachers, journalists, community workers and the general public giving their say, and there to answer the questions you have for them.
This is a great opportunity if you want to find out more about the strong belief you hold for a certain matter or want to discuss it with like-minded people.
When: Wed 15th April, 6:00pm – 8:30pm.
Where: The Ethics Centre, Level 2 Legion House, 161 Castlereagh Street.

A Trick of the Eye
If you're constantly asking yourself "Imagine if the children of today had to play with the toys I was given as a child".
Or if you're quite questionable about the whole video gaming, tablet-staring culture we now live in, and want to show your children that there are different toys out there, than why not pop along to A Trick of the Eye, and even bring back some memories for yourself with the display of all the toys from a time where batteries didn't need to be included, and early animation was used to trick the eye and gives hours of entertainment without being hooked up to the internet. Also every child gets to make a toy to bring home.
When: Fri 10th, Mon 13th, Fri 17th of April.
Where: Vaucluse House, Wentworth Rd, Vaucluse.
Cost: $12.00 including accompanied adult.
