We’re interested in how the world and art collide. We think it’s most interesting when art is seen in context. In a time of intense political confusion, where it’s difficult to articulate the changes so many want to see, artistic practice – with its complex arsenal of the subconscious – is well placed to be a key player.

Our format is unique. We’re not interested in expert-led formats; we want big opinions, good discussion and personal stories. And coffee. That’s important.

Each event runs for two hours, and will be punctuated by a series of provocations from artists, key thinkers and our international curators-in-residence.

Arrive at any point. Pull up a chair and a croissant. And dive on in.

Co-hosted by Tipping Point Australia, Crikey, Oaktree Foundation and presented in partnership with the Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas.
