Cultural Day

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, their family and friends.

The next School of Philosophy Cultural Day will be held online on Sunday, 24th March 2024. Students of the School of Philosophy and their friends and family can attend three sessions of your choosing. Each session runs for 90 minutes, and allows ample opportunity for questions and group discussion. There are breaks for lunch and tea through the day giving an opportunity for you to meet and get to know other students and to share feedback on the presentations.

About the Cultural Day


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

It was lovely to spend time with like-minded people…


I felt very comfortable in a welcoming atmosphere. There is a lightness of spirit to the whole day!
