Spark is the Library’s new lecture series – with a twist.

Join us for an evening of music and conversation that challenges expectations and inspires a better way of living.

Hosted by Rwandan-British composer and research-based multidisciplinary storyteller Stéphanie Kabanyana Kanyandekwe, the first event in the series will explore the adaptability quotient and how our ability to adapt determines how we can survive – or thrive – in life’s patterns of collapse and renewal.

Beginning with a provocation and lecture from science and technology storytellers Future Crunch, the topic is then explored by a panel of thinkers before the audience is invited to discuss and debate the ideas raised and possible steps to make them happen. 

Drinks and canapes will be available to purchase on the night. 

Please note: tickets will go onsale in January 2022. State Library Victoria members will receive 48-hour early release of tickets. Become a member today.
