Has technology caused us to lose the art of connection? Is loneliness a modern pandemic? If so, how do we cure it? How can we better reconnect?

Join this very special Night of Better Conversation hosted by the much-loved School of Life. You’ll be led in a relaxed and friendly discussion about making friends and building relationships, and an exploration of the current state of connection. How can our failures make us more interesting, and our vulnerabilities more appealing? How do we overcome shyness and connect with people with whom we seem to have nothing in common?

This event is supported by MPavilion’s principal partner RACV.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
