Footscray University Town

Game Changers conversation series

Ideas that shape our world and the people behind them.

The Game Changers series presents pivotal concepts, personalities and moments in Australia’s evolving story for public discussion and debate.

The series comprises several events jointly presented at venues across Footscray by Maribyrnong City Council and Victoria University as part of their Footscray University Town partnership. Each event is free and open to the whole community.

Join the VU at MetroWest mailing list to be updated regularly about upcoming events. If you have recently attended a Game Changers event we'd love to get your feedback.
