Michael Leunig on Wednesday

Looking forward to this on Wednesday morning…

Cartoonist, philosopher, poet and artist Michael Leunig, will be joining Archbishop Philip Freier on Wednesday in the next of the series of Conversations at BMW Edge, Federation Square. This month’s conversation with Michael Leunig will explore the topic, “What is the role of the prophetic voice in the 21st century?”

Leunig’s commentary on political, cultural and emotional life spans thirty-five years and has often explored the idea of an innocent and sacred personal world. He describes his approach as regressive, messy and vaudevillian – producing work which is both raw and sublime, loved and hated. His themes and images have been widely used and adapted in the realms of music, theatre, therapy, religious life and spirituality. In 1999 he was declared a national living treasure by the National Trust for his unique contribution to Australian culture.
