Modern life can feel like an injury. Where do we turn for hope when all seems dark? It’s times like these we need the consolation of art and ducks. Join us for an evening with Michael Leunig - cartoonist and philosopher - for a glimpse into his twentieth collection of cartoons Ducks for Dark Times. Explore the mind of one of Australia’s most treasured artists and find the wisdom and resilience needed for anyone who is losing faith; who’s becoming exhausted or fed up with the news, and for those of us who feel we could do well to laugh or weep a little more.
