Without seeking to trivialise our conference aims, we don’t believe conversations about a Good Childhood should be restricted to earnest or academic exchanges.
After all, we all hope that childhood involves a good measure of fun and creativity.
We plan to end The Good Childhood Conference on a positive and entertaining note with a perspective on the good childhood theme from Brain Nankervis.
Brian is a Melbourne based performer, writer and producer who is probably best known as co-host of the popular SBS music trivia series ‘RocKwiz’.
In 2012 Brian hosted the talk show ‘Pictures of You’ on Channel 7. Guests were invited into the studio armed with their family photo collections and encouraged to reminisce about their early life.
At our conference, Brain will recreate this format with two of our presenters who will share some childhood photos and in the process, tell us something about who they are today.
If you go further back into Brian’s history as a performer, you might recall his regular appearances on Hey Hey It’s Saturday as the tortured street poet Raymond J Bartholomeuz.
We can’t promise you any poems but Brian is a consummate storyteller and he’s bound to whimsically and poignantly share something of his own childhood.
We hope to see you on Friday afternoon for a delightful end to a stimulating, possibly challenging conference program!
