Saturday 24 October 5pm - 7 pm

Cost: $20

 "It’s not where you live, but how you live that makes us belong."

Hugh Mackay is a social researcher and the author of sixteen books focussed on social psychology & ethics. His most recent book - The Art of Belonging advances the argument put forward in his previous bestselling book The Good Life: that a ‘good life’ is not lived in isolation or in the pursuit of independent goals; a good life is lived at the heart of a thriving community, among people we trust, and within an environment of mutual respect.

Hugh's desire is to reignite a timely conversation about how we want to live, with a vision of community that sustains, protects and nurtures the many, not just the few.

There will be time for questions, dialogue and book signings.

Book early as this is sure to be a sell out event.

Proceeds from Hugh's talk will be donated to Quest for Life Bundanoon and the Inner West Sydney homeless women's project.
