Climate Torches converge in Canberra, Sunday 12 October

By Overheard 8 October 2008 2

The four climate torches that have been winding their way around the continent will converge on Canberra this Sunday morning at 10.30am in Reconcilation Place.

They’ll then make their way to Federation Mall (twixt old and new parliament houses) to be received by members of the government and the opposition (hopefully k-Rudd and M T-Bull).

But the day will be light on the politics and heavy on the entertainment.

From 11am:
— Equinox
— Chorus of Women
— Sarah Daphne Foo
— Cyrenes
— Dynamic Studio
— Fiona and Fizz
— Simone Penkethman
— Dubba Rukki, and more.

Information stalls, food and entertainment. Come and find out how you can reduce and offset your carbon footprint while enjoying some great entertainment.

Your master of ceremonies for the day: MC Overheard. Presented by GetUp. (For the record, I’m not a member of GetUp… yet.)

What a day, what an event, what a great crowd, and what a fabulous temp MC (midday to 1.30pm-ish) is Rhys Muldoon. I had no idea he was going to be there until this morning — great surprise to get to meet, greet, banter with, and swap stories with him of going to school in Canberra in the same years and only a few miles down the road from each other; my gawd, he’s actually younger than me by about three months!

You may have seen the news bulletins. And watch this space for more.
