Running for over 20 years, the Cultural Day is a major event for the Melbourne School of Philosophy where students come together twice a year to share good company, find inspiration and learn something new. The Cultural Day is a unique event where the more senior students from the School invest their time and considerable experience in creating presentations to share with the earlier students of the school.

The next School of Philosophy Cultural Day will be held online on Sunday, 27th March 2022. You can attend two sessions of your choosing. Each session runs for 75 minutes, and allows ample opportunity for questions and group discussion.

About the Cultural Day

culturalday-logo

Cultural Day is a day full of inspiration, fellowship and calm for philosophy students their families, friends and past students.

First presented in 1997 it has become a Melbourne School of Philosophy institution due to its popularity and extensive breadth of offerings on all aspects of life and all areas of study. Offered twice per year Cultural Day is an opportunity to take part in three different workshops during a full day that follows an expo style format with a difference – all the presenters are fellow students of philosophy with a love of their subject.

The day is fully catered with refreshments served in the tea break and an exceptional vegetarian buffet lunch. Both the catering team and the service team are all members of the School giving their time to enable attendant students and guests the opportunity to enjoy 7 hours of food for body, mind and soul.

Each workshop runs for one and a half hours allowing plenty of time for lively discussion and the sharing of viewpoints as well as contemplative practices to bring a rest and peace to the day’s proceedings. Students choose the sessions they want to attend from an exhaustive list of offerings that might include great pillars of Philosophy like Plato and Patanjali or more modern practices like Mindfulness, Resilience and Leadership. For the classically minded Shakespeare, Calligraphy, Art or singing are examples of subjects students can choose from. Occasionally proceedings are brought to a close with a live concert or performance. New students to the school may be invited to offer a presentation at Cultural day and so continue the tradition for the next 24 years!

The variety was excellent and the presentations were delivered with so much interest and love…
