What we'll do

What can punk teach the agile movement?
Agile, like punk isn't a specific set of techniques. It's a belief system based on a set of values and principles.

What happened during they heyday of punk? How did it survive and thrive? What is the legacy of the punk movement for today's society? What lessons can be drawn from that into our agile thinking?

Tonight we have three guest speakers who will ruminate and reflect on the influence of punk, and on what we might take away for our current journeys.


*David Nichols*, author of 'The Bogan Delusion' and academic at Melbourne University

*Melynda von Wayward*, author of 'Punk: A Photographic Journey,' and curator of punkjourney.com

*Nigel Dalton*, Host of Battle of the Agile Bands and Chief Scientist at REA

Drinks and networking from 5.30pm. Speakers start at 6.30pm. Afterwards we might go see a band.


Having raised money for Flying Robot School in 2018, we are continuing the $10, refundable RSVP deposit system. In short, if you turn up, you can get your money back. If you're a no-show, we give the money to a good cause. You can also choose not get a refund.
