To speculate (wildly) on our futures, the ever-growing levels of waste impacting our human lives can be cause for concern and action, but also, opportunities for new inventions and ways of living.
How do we stimulate and contribute to our earth systems by way of our connection with nature? Do our emerging sustainable design practices utilising recycled materials change our perceptions of our future dwellings? Would you drink treated waste water? (you will…)
In this discussion about the methods we are taking in designing our future lives, we have assembled a thinktank of scientists, artists, designers, researchers and more theorising about the positive action we as humans can enable (and the hard work it's going to take to get us there.)

MQFF Session: 19211

The controversial gay photographer Robert Mapplethorpe brought to vivid life his innermost sexual fantasies, fetishes and desires, becoming in the process one of the most important artists of the 20th century. His legendary life and death has been documented many times before through documentary and countless biographies.
Director Ondi Timoner and star Matt Smith bring an unflinching honesty to their portrayal, unafraid to show the more unattractive and complex aspects of this great photographer’s persona, while in the process documenting a vital and exciting time in New York City that gave rise to artists such as Mapplethorpe’s once lover and creative partner, Patti Smith, who also features heavily in this fascinating portrait of a trailblazing artist.
‘Matt Smith brings the controversial photographer to vivid life’. – The Wrap
Proudly Presented by Herbert Smith Freehills.

Classic Southside would like to welcome back The Alma Zygier Quartet. Alma Zygier has been fascinated by the pre-war era of jazz; the singers, Ella Fitzgerald, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Memphis Minnie, and the Broadway composers who largely provided the repertoire, Gershwin, Kern, Porter, Rodgers.
She has a voice from another era and brings an emotional maturity to her performance that belies her years. Performing with a similarly-minded group of hot players she brings her American Songbook repertoire to the 21st century.
