A hypothetical event to be hosted by Charles Darwin University will aim to court controversy and provide food for thought for people working with social change.
The hypothetical entitled, Charity vs Social Change, is part of Anti-Poverty Week 2008 which aims to help fight poverty and hardship in a global context.
Poverty and severe hardship affect more than one million Australians and more than one billion people around the world.
Hosted by NT Shelter and CDU’s Social Work and Community Studies, the hypothetical will be moderated by Northern Territory identity and Territory FM radio announcer, Daryl Manzie and will feature panellists and academics from a diverse range of occupational backgrounds.
Charity vs Social Change will be held on Tuesday, 14 October at 11am at CDU’s Mal Nairn Auditorium.
Audience members will be encouraged to participate in the second half of the event and light refreshments will be provided. All CDU staff and students are welcome.
Anti-Poverty Week runs from the 13 to 18 October 2008.
