Ken Haley on Why Everyone Should Be in a Wheelchair

Ken Haley speaks about the advantages of wheeled mobility, and asks what disability grips those bipeds who can’t see they should be in envy of wheelchair users – those lucky souls on a thrill ride that lasts a lifetime. A light-hearted look at the philosophical principle of mutual incomprehension.

Lunchbox / Soapbox

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.
