Event description

Description

The Western world is seeing a collapse in people’s faith in institutions, democracy, and even each other. Societies are fractured; political norms upended. Polarising debates centre on issues of identity, values, and belonging, and tribal voices muzzle the notion of a common good. In many countries, religious faith is becoming just one more marker of tribal division. For this year’s Richard Johnson Lecture, Tim Dixon offers a vision for how we might reunite increasingly fragmented societies.


Join us for drinks at 6.30pm, with the lecture beginning at 7.30pm followed by Q&A.




Tim Dixon is co-founder of More in Common, an international initiative which has published some of the world’s leading research on the drivers of polarisation and social division. He has worked as chief speechwriter and economic adviser for two Australian Prime Ministers. He has helped start and grow social movement organisations around the world that have worked to protect civilians in Syria, address modern day slavery, promote gun control in the U.S. and engage faith communities in social justice.





The Richard Johnson Lecture is an activity ​of the Centre for Public Christianity. The lecture seeks to highlight Christianity's relevance to society and positively contribute to public discourse on key aspects of civil life.
