Griffith Review 71: Remaking the Balance
28 March 2021
IAN HANGER RECITAL HALL, QUEENSLAND CONSERVATORIUM

Summary

How will we change what we do with what we have?

Join Griffith Review 71: Remaking the Balance contributors Ian Lowe, Sophie Cunningham and Jasmin McGaughey and Editor, Ashley Hay as they explore the ways in which our changing relationships with resources are changing what we do with all that’s animal, vegetable and mineral – as well as with less tangible commodities such as memory, stories and hope.

This is a compelling and urgent discussion on the inelastic limits of the planet; on energy in all forms – from nuclear and hydrogen to human; on how to treat hope and courage as muscles we can exercise; and on the potential for rupture bound up in the pandemic, the possibilities for change that it contains and the more critical question of how to set them underway.
