The School of Life presents ‘Two Guys and a Whisky Bar’
Saturday 9 September
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Sydney Contemporary Ticket Holders
Location: Glenfiddich Bar
The School of Life presents a lively discussion with philosopher Dr Tim Dean and anthropologist Dr Monty Badami. They disagree on almost everything, except the importance of trying to understand how we find and create meaning in the world (as well as on the ineffable merits of good whisky). In this special event, Monty and Tim will take the stage, whisky in hand, to tackle the big questions about the role of art and the consolation of culture. Tim and Monty will challenge the audience by opening up a discussion about what art is actually for, and how we can use art to understand ourselves in a deeper way. They by no means propose to know all of the answers – so they will welcome audience discussion and participation as part of this unique event for Sydney Contemporary, presented by The School of Life.
Founded by Philosopher Alain de Botton, The School of Life is a place to step back and think intelligently about central emotional concerns. You will never be cornered by dogma, but directed towards a variety of ideas from the humanities – from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts – ideas that will exercise, stimulate and expand your mind. You will meet other curious, sociable and open-minded people in an atmosphere of exploration and enjoyment.
