Come to the inaugural meeting of Perth’s first and only….
LIBRARY FIGHT CLUB
“Where did you get that bruise?”
A meeting of library people to discuss hot topics, learn from the discussion and put new ideas and concepts to the test. We will find all the arguments and counter–arguments around a topic and voice opinions that might be unpopular but will force us to analyse and rethink current practises.
Everyone who wants a say can have one, and we hope that everyone who attends will have a go at giving some kind of opinion – whether sensible or outlandish, whether you agree with it or not. Sometimes arguing against what you believe clarifies why you actually believe it. Or you could even find you change your mind.
Library people (as everyone else) can get stuck in an echo chamber of the same inoffensive conversations, and Library Fight Club will stop all the niceties and get discussions going.
Everybody welcome, bring your non-library friends!!
Of course, we don’t talk about Library Fight Club, but we may tweet/blog it if anyone non-local is interested. Let us know.
When is it on?
The first meeting is on the 17th of December, at 6pm at the upstairs room of Rosie O’Grady’s in Northbridge. RSVP to petra.dumbell@postgrad.
This is a free event, but we are expected to buy a few drinks from the bar downstairs.
What will we fight about at the first meeting?
“We are done being librarians – nobody should have “librarian” in their job title”
the inaugural fight club members: Kathryn Greenhill, Lydia Dawe, Matthias Liffers, Megan Fitzgibbons, Yusuke Fitzgibbons, Petra Dumbell
