Hobart Bookshop: Same time, same Scott, different place …

We have had such an incredible response to the upcoming launch of Scott Rankin’s Platform Paper, Cultural Justice and the Right to Thrive, the Quarterly Essay on the Performing Arts that we have had to change the venue from our humble shop to the Long Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre, 77 Salamanca Place (just around the corner!).

In this talk, Scott, who is a powerful advocate for communities experiencing the effects of disadvantage, argues that culture is a human right and we must advocate for it with the full language of the law. Cultural Rights are as essential to our national wellbeing as health and education – if everyone is to have the right to thrive.

Big hART is Australia’s leading arts for social change organisation and the 2017 Telstra Charity and Tasmanian Business of the Year.

This is still a free event and all are most definitely welcome.

Where: Long Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre, 77 Salamanca Place
When: Tuesday November 20th, 5.30pm
