The Quarterly Conversation is an MtE inititative to foster conversation in the community on important social and political themes. Our hope is that these conversation groups will broaden understanding of — and engagement in — what is happening in Australian society.
The conversations are held quarterly, and have as their basis the corresponding issue of the Quarterly Essay — a widely-known journal which treats important community and national issues in a single extended, focussed essay.
Participants should get a hold of the current essay and read it in preparation for discussion in the group. Copies are available at your local library, bookstore or newsagent, and in hardcopy and electronic versions from various online sources or by direct subscription.
This is an “experiment” on MtE’s part, with a commitment to run to project for a year to see how it goes. We hope you will join us! If you would like to attend one of the groups, please indicate in the form below.
