Gala: A Better Tomorrow

We’re excited to announce that Reni Eddo-Lodge will be appearing in this session!

MWF’s sharpest minds deliver an invigorating evening of polemics. This gala event will see writers including Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Jane Caro, Reni Eddo-Lodge, Emilie Zoey Baker and Omar Musa make individual cases against values and institutions, provoking new possibilities for a better society. Nothing is off-limits for these bold, outspoken thinkers – come and hear their visions for a brighter, more equal tomorrow. With a performance by host Clare Bowditch.

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday 21 July. This session is not able to be booked on a Festival Pass.

Update to previous information: Reni Eddo-Lodge and Emilie Zoey Baker are replacing Stan Grant and Tony Jones in this session.

Supported by Monash University.
