View all events in this series
Social advocate and parish priest, Father Bob McGuire has been described as a national living treasure. On his popular blog and radio program he challenges convention and calls for action on issues of policy, poverty and prejudice and more. Heaven knows what will happen when he swaps the pulpit for the soapbox!
Father Bob was one of Australia’s best-loved parish priests; he appears Sunday nights on Triple J.
We love exploring ideas at the Wheeler Centre, and encouraging others to do the same. That’s why every Thursday lunchtime we hand the microphone over to the great thinkers, dreamers and orators of our time.
With a dazzling range of passionate speakers and unusual topics, our soapbox provides a platform for the eclectic, topical and enlightening stories you won’t hear elsewhere. This is the most memorable lunch break you’ll have all week.
If you’re in need of sustenance of body as well as mind, the MOAT lunch cart will be serving delicious $10 lunchboxes in the Performance Space from 12.20pm.
