So, what if AFL can cure democracy?

Friday 24 May, 12.30pm - 1.30pm


We are proudly devoted to the Australian Rules Football code – can its unique code of conduct serve as the perfect model for democracy?

Join VWFL player and MKW19 ambassador Akec Chuot and journalist George Megalogenis for a one-hour discussion about football as the ultimate leveller on the playing field and beyond. Footy is a way of life, a community and a passion. It shapes our cities and our lives. With the explosive introduction of the AFLW, footy has become more democratic than ever – can it help shape our future?

This panel is part of our ‘So, what if?’ lunchtime talks series, presented in partnership with The Wheeler Centre, which includes:
