The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Ending the cycle of poverty …


If we want things to change, we have to do things differently – what would it take?

Governments, individuals and community organisations work hard to disrupt, manage and minimise the impacts of poverty. But what would it take to end it? What keeps people trapped in poverty, both individually and inter-generationally? What would it take to break the cycle in terms of housing, education and jobs?

This Anti-Poverty Week, please join the Institute for the Study of Social Change, the Economic Society of Australia and Anglicare’s Social Action Research Centre for a special event as Meg Webb discusses ending the cycle of poverty with our expert panel of Dr Kathleen Flanagan, Professor Natalie Brown and TasCOSS CEO Kym Goodes, and invites questions from the audience.

When: Tues 16th October, 6.00–7.30 pm
Where: Centenary Lecture Theatre
University of Tasmania, Sandy Bay Free public event.
