You Say You Want a Revolution

Presented by Melbourne Festival and Wheeler Centre

The Wheeler Centre and Melbourne Festival join forces to present a series of talks exploring some of the ideas that underpin and inform this year’s Festival program. Revolution, insurrection, protest and upheaval are an inevitable part of any social or political structure, but at what cost and to what end?

Over three nights we hear the voices of resistance and struggle, and explore the need for revolutionary thinking and radical action. If the late, great Gil Scott Heron was right, the revolution will not be televised, but it will be discussed at length.
