28 Sept 18 (Evening): An evening with Warren Mundine in Black + White

Introduction by Tom Switzer, executive director of the Centre for Independent Studies.

Overcoming segregation, discrimination, personal hardship and political betrayal – Nyunggai Warren Mundine tells it all in black and white.
Warren ‘s raw, intimate success story shines a bright and inspiring light showing there is no limit to what you can achieve. From the poverty of a family living in a tent beside a river, to the depths of depression and an attempted suicide, to the heights of political power as National President of the Australian Labor Party and advisor to five prime ministers, both Labor and Liberal, this is a stirring story of an Indigenous family woven into the very fabric of Australia and its politics.

29 Sept 18 (Day): Conference Program

The conference features over 20 of Australia’s leading media personalities, commentators, politicians, activists and economists to debate issues and to engage directly with delegates and each other. It features speakers who are intellectual disruptors exploring a vast array of areas like free speech, climate change, indigenous affairs, democracy and economics.

Where: Royal on the Park Hotel, Alice Street Brisbane CBD
When: 8:30am to 5pm.
Speakers: View list of announced speakers. Please note, the full speaker schedule will be announced approximately three weeks out.

The conference is followed immediately by sponsor’s pre-dinner drinks at 5pm.

29 Sept (Evening): Gala Liberty Dinner

After the high energy of the day conference, the gala dinner is a chance to relax with new friends and chat with speakers over good food and wine. The evening will feature our keynote speaker and the announcement of the 2018 Liberty Award winner to be presented by last year’s winner Tony Morris QC.

To be immediately followed by the Liberty afterparty featuring James Fox-Higgins on guitar and beers, wine and… beers and wine!
