June 2017 Assembly: Democracy


Winston Churchill once said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried.

In June 2017, Sunday Assembly Canberra will tackle a subject that affects all of us on a daily basis. We will discuss Democracy.

We tend to take democracy for granted, but what do we really mean by democracy? Is it just voting or is there more to it than that? And if we're dissatisfied with the state of our democracy, how can we improve it?

As usual, we will curate a whole event around this theme of Democracy, including most of our usual elements, such as readings, songs, and cake. In addition, we will also try a fun democratic exercise to explore the theme of Democracy, drawing on all the diversity of our community. The exercise will be introduced and facilitated by our very own democracy expert, Dr Wendy Russell.

Sunday Assembly Canberra is a radically-inclusive, non-religious gathering held once per month. Our events are built around our motto: Live Better, Help Often, Wonder More.

Where: Majura Hall, Rosevear Place, Dickson. (Near the Majura Tennis courts).
When: Sunday 18 June 2017. Please arrive by 2:15 for a 2:30 p.m. start.
RSVP: Please register your free tickets via http://www.sundayassemblycanberra.com/june-2017

Interesting speaker + community + songs + tea & cake = Sunday Assembly Canberra.

If you are coming along to the assembly, we are always very grateful to anyone who can bring a home-baked or store-bought cake to share after the assembly!
