Progress – A Festival of Ideas is a series of talks, music, theatre and performance that runs for two weeks at Monash Clayton campus, May 16-26. And you have the opportunity to win double passes to 19 events throughout the festival.
The theme of the festival is ‘progress’ and will interrogate that word in various ways. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll think as the festival showcases some of Australia’s best creative talent across a series of comedy shows, theatre performances, talks and gigs. Events range from Fleur Kilpatrick’s climate change play Whale to all-star comedy night Smokestack featuring Tom Ballard and Zoë Coombs-Marr. Music shows include a concert of protest songs, Archie Roach on stage with Paul Grabowsky, plus cabaret and jazz. Talks cover feminism, technology and creativity, an interview with Iranian refugee, journalist and writer Behrouz Boochani live from Manus Island via video link, and the mysterious ‘wheel of bias’ that prevents human progress.
Time Out has ten coveted double passes that will get you into 19 events in Progress – A Festival of Ideas, including all of the above. Yes, you read that right – win one of these babies and you and a friend had better cancel all your engagements for a fortnight, as you’re going to experience two weeks of inspiring music, theatre and ideas at Monash University.
