Special event with Tim Fischer AC ― and a fun Debate
Opening Address: Tango in Travel and Travel Writing: Bhutan to Batemans Bay!
Tim Fischer is the author of many train books and books on Rome and Bhutan. In his opening address, Mr Fischer transports us from Outback Australia to Rome and the Vatican, and from Bhutan to Batemans Bay. And of course, he includes his passion for train travel.
Debate: Pictures speak louder than words
Words enrich our lives, entertain us and inform us. Painting, photography, film and the vast array of visual arts move us, alarm us and cast a light on the world around us. But which is the more effective medium? Do we respond more to what we see than what we read?
Opposing teams entertain while much pictorial postulating is pursued.
With Moderator: Paul Brunton OAM, historian, archivist, rare books fiend and passionate reader.
