Dr Gill Hicks is considered to be one of the most thought provoking, powerful and life-affirming speakers in Australia.
She is globally known as a survivor of the London terrorist bombings on July 7, 2005. She survived but suffered severe and permanent injuries, losing both legs from just below the knee.
There are few people who have endured such unimaginable trauma and are able to rejoice and celebrate just being alive. Equally there are few people who can speak about a tragic event in such an engaging and uplifting manner. Her appreciation and gratitude is infectious and offers a brilliant reminder of just how precious our lives are.
Inspiring is a word often overused, but Gill Hicks' remarkable courage and determination to truly triumph over tragedy is nothing but inspirational.
An impressive career, pre the bombings, included Gill being at the helm of some of the UK's most prestigious and respected institutions - including Publishing Director of the architecture, design and contemporary culture magazine, Blueprint, Director of the Dangerous Minds design consultancy, and Head Curator at the Design Council.
It wasn't until after the bombings that Gill decided to dedicate her life to being an advocate for peace.
WHEN: 6:00pm - 9:00pm Thursday 5 September 2019
WHERE: Premiere Function Centre, Grey Street Traralgon
COST: $110 pp. inc GST (includes 3 course dinner)
We will be raising funds for an Australian based charity Sight for All that is close to Gill's heart.
Visit www.sightforall.org to learn more about the amazing work they do to restore sight. $10 from every ticket purchase and all proceeds from raffles will be donated.
