For one night only, you are invited to engage with a live Wikipedia of fascinating thought leaders, experts and mavericks.
Thirty people from a wide range of fields will gather to share their reflections and revelations in response to â€œWhat are these times that we live in and what is the future we are making?â€. A bell marks the time and you move from table to table engaging in four intimate 20 minute conversations; it could be with a social activist, geneticist, sangoma, astrophysicist, or futurist ... who knows who youâ€™ll meet.
Talking Heads uses the art of conversation as a potent way to exchange and build knowledge about the world and ourselves. Some of the participants include: Dr. Anthony Turton, South African Environmentalist of the Year 2010; JHB inner city developer, Jonathan Liebmann; Andile Mngxitama, firebrand social commentator; Dion Chang, trend guru; and SA Human Genome Project expert, Dr. Michele Ramsay.
Book immediately as there are only 90 tickets available. Dress with flair. Wine and tasty snacks will be served.
When: Wednesday, 22 June 2011 from 19h00 â€“ 22h00
Where: Villa Arcadia, 22 Oxford Road, Parktown
To book: Computicket on http://www.computicket.com
Tickets can be collected at Villa Arcadia upon entrance on the 22 June 2011.
