The Power of the People

Sun 11 Sep, 3pm

What can we learn from the history of regular people coming together to fight for change? Hear from Walkley Award–winning journalist Jeff Sparrow and comics artist and illustrator Sam Wallman as they discuss the struggles, successes and ambitions of collective action. Sparrow's book Crimes Against Nature recasts ordinary people as the solution rather than the problem when it comes to preserving our planet. Wallman's longform comic Our Members Be Unlimited celebrates the humanism at the heart of the trade union movement. They are joined in conversation by Elena Gomez.
