The Collective, 139 Elgin Street, Carlton
Join Radio National’s Big Ideas Presenter Paul Barclay as he speaks with Griffith Review contributors: Sophie Cunningham, Anne Orford and Alan Schwartz. Please note this show will be recorded.
Griffith Review 71: Remaking the Balance explores our relationships with resources – all that’s animal, vegetable and mineral – as well as with so many less tangible commodities. What does sustainability look like in 2021 in terms of food, energy, memory, systems and hope? This edition examines our psychological, existential and political condition. Anxiety and depression are on the rise in Australia and across the globe; digital media has created a pandemic of loneliness and disconnection; ideological extremism is widening our divisions and threatening our democracies; and the wellness industry is spinning everything from mindfulness to minimalism into big business.
