Speakers’ Corner 2.0: Drug Law Reform


WHEN: 2-3pm – 7 Apr 2019


WHERE: The Domain, opposite the Art Gallery of NSW

For 140 years Speakers’ Corner has been open to everyone every Sunday.

When controversial issues like conscription have been discussed, over 100,000 have gathered in The Domain to listen and learn. Prime Ministers, playwrights and plumbers have all addressed the crowds.

With a live stream inviting comments and questions from all over the world, Speakers' Corner 2.0 aims to broaden the discussion. Think TED talks mixed with Q&A but back to the literal grassroots where anyone has a chance to participate.

Join Speakers' Corner 2.0 on Sunday April 7th, where their speakers will be discussing drug law reform in Australia, including pill testing at festivals, sniffer dogs and strip searches, and the 'Portugal model' of decriminalisation.

Speakers include:

Gino Vumbaca, President, Harm Reduction Australia

Jess Miller, former City of Sydney Council Deputy Lord Mayor

Cate Faerhmann, Greens MLC

Dr Caitlin Hughes, National Drug & Alcohol Research Centre

Marianne Jauncey, Director, Sydney Uniting Medically Supervised Injecting Centre

Jay Bacik, talkback radio host, retired ordained Minister

With more coming soon!

This event is supported under the 107 Presents program, with additional support from Big Spin Productions, Urban Winery Sydney, and the City of Sydney.
