Magda Szubanski
“Thrown to the lions” How to survive the cyber marketplace of ideas.
Tuesday 10 September
5.45pm – 7.00pm

Social media is the new arena where ideas and individuals live or die at the will of the mob.

As a celebrity, Magda Szubanski has often found herself at the centre of these lawless, sometimes bruising interactions. But it was as an advocate for marriage equality that she encountered the real nature of the internet, red in tooth and claw. So, how do we drain the poison that has entered the lifeblood of society?

Let’s find out together.

This is a free event. Registration is essential.
