Not your average Sunday session.

SORT’s Colloquia Sunday Sessions are intimate, collaborative social conversations with evolving themes, hosted monthly at the SORT Hub in West End, Brisbane.

 

Local community, students and academics gather for open knowledge production and sharing, led by a moderator and panel.

Some would argue Australia’s most unruly urban rioting & democratic rights contests happened here, in this sleepy, sunny town of ours. From our turbulent political past in the Bjelke-Petersen years, to the local and global calls-to-action saturating our everyday news feed. 

 

The many pockets of Brisbane activism are as diverse as the growing urban population. Who is the modern day activist & how have they evolved since the days of violent street-based rallying in the seventies? What is the most impactful form of activism & how does individual agency play a part — from your choice of work to your waste habits?

Inject some intellect into your Sunday afternoon & join the social conversation.
