Politics in the Pub

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and New Farm Neighbourhood Centre

Let’s talk about loneliness, together.

Join us on 20 August at the Brisbane Powerhouse as we chat about the loneliness epidemic. How big is the problem? Is there a solution out there? Let’s have a community conversation about this, with a panel of experts, as we wrestle with questions about loneliness in the digital age, loneliness for marginalised communities, city design and third spaces and more.

Panelists will be announced in the lead up to the event. ABC Brisbane’s Rebecca Levingston will MC the event.

Politics in the Pub is a free, Q&A style debate which tackles the most pressing contemporary issues for both Australia and the world.

Admission is free, but we would appreciate you registering your interest in attending via the Eventbrite link.

Politics in the Pub is a fantastic way of getting people together to discuss the issues that matter most to the inner city community
