Richard Gill on Musical Literacy

In the race to teach children to be literate and numerate is there a chance that we have lost sight of the real goals of literacy and numeracy and the real reasons for education? What is the education revolution the Federal Government speaks of and where is the place of music in this revolution? How does music help us become literate?

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.
