Visitor Voices: Open Symposium Series

Town: Melbourne

Address: 280 William Street, Melbourne, 3000, VIC

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

The ancient Greeks were known for their love of getting together in a relaxed environment, breaking bread and arguing about philosophy, politics and the meaning of life. Inspired by these ancient symposia, Visitor Voices invites you to explore some of life’s age-old questions from a modern perspective, in a casual group environment.

On the third Saturday of every month, Museum staff will guide a Socratic-style discussion among a small group, unleashing your inner philosopher and creating a dialogue between institution and visitor.

In 2024 they will explore four major themes – Conflict and Humanity, Law and Freedom, Childhood and Getting Social – with each theme explored over two–three sessions, and every session centred around a different question. There is no prior knowledge required, just a sense of curiosity!

Tickets include Museum general admission before or after the session. Please note, due to the discussion of mature themes, this program is recommended for ages 15 and older.
