Lunchbox / Soapbox
View all events in this series
Travel is a nigh universal human ambition. Why is it, then, that the travel sections of most newspapers and magazines are the dullest parts of the publication?
Lunchbox/Soapbox is a simple idea; an old-fashioned Speakers’ Corner in the middle of the city, in the middle of the day.
London-based Andrew Mueller couldn’t decide between being a rock journalist, travel writer or foreign correspondent so he thought he’d try all three at once.
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.
