LATE: The Age of Slacktivism

Everyone is there for a reason at the LATE at the Auckland Museum session I'm fronting on Monday evening. The theme is The Age of#Slacktivism, which I'm effectively interpreting as "beyond slacktivism" -- that's why ActionStation cofounder and Amnesty International NZ board member Marianne Elliot, and the face of RockEnrol, Laura O'Connell Rapira, are on the panel. 

The fact that Nicky Hager and Matthew Hooton are also on the panel doesn't mean it will be Dirty Politics redux. There are things I'll ask them all about changing hearts and minds, and about bridging the gap between me-too hashtagging and whatever change you actually want.

Both before and after the panel discussion, there will be korero and waiata from Moana Maniapoto and Paddy Free, which I'm really looking forward to.

The schedule, details and links to buy your $20 ticket are here. See you on Monday, maybe.
