🕑 6pm-7pm
📍 BENDIGO BANK THEATRE AT THE CAPITAL
👤 Kon Karapanagiotidis with Chris Kelly

Kon Karapanagiotidis remembers what it was like to be a lonely child, bullied and ostracised for who he was. Now a strong advocate for asylum seekers, he believes that "hope is only exhausted if we forsake ourselves". Chris Kelly talks to this inspirational leader about the life he has led, the moments along the way that gave him courage, and what now is important to him as he encourages others to face the world with compassion, kindness and hope.
