Special lunch event on Sunday. In conversation with John Pilger

COMETH THE HOUR, COMETH THE MAN

John Pilger has been the voice of conscience for governments across the globe for four decades. An outspoken advocate for human rights, free speech, ethics in journalism and transparency in the involvement of the media in the mechanics of war, it is easy to forget that there is a man behind the mission. Join him in an unguarded moment as the glorious Maya unleashes the full force of its culinary expertise in its terraced and elegant setting and journalist Denise Leith asks the questions to which we all want answers.

Cost A$80

Sunday, 07 October 2012 12:00 - 15:00

Maya Ubud - Br. Ambengan Peliatan, Ubud - Bali - Indonesia


MESSAGES FROM THE FRONT

Find yourself in Ubud's most enchanting garden setting, in the centre of town yet cocooned in beauty amid softly twinkling lights. Contrast this with the life of a war correspondent or journalist on the front line, the people who bring us the news of the world's most devastating events, its endless instabilities and uprisings. How does daily life continue, how do the simplest tasks unfold, how does the domestic routine that we take for granted play out and how does the human spirit survive? Denise Leith, Karl Schembri and Hani Shukrullah share more than Il Giardino's killer cocktails and mind-blowing canapés. Denise Leith, Karl Schembri, Hani Schukrallah

Cost: A$50
