Bettina Arndt update

Just received:

Hi Everyone,

Hurrah, finally my #MenTour is underway. We have three Queensland venues booked in for October:

Sunshine Coast – Monday October 7.

Bundaberg – Wednesday October 9

Townsville – Friday October 11.

All the details of times, venues etc are on Fanforce, the organisation which is helping me make this all happen. Booking are available through the site.

Fanforce is an organisation that normally helps people host movies in their local area. This is the first time Fanforce has been involved in a speaking tour and it will be interesting to see how it all takes off.

They’ve done a great job with the teaser. See here –

Here are the links you can use to help me promote the events:

We have a bunch of people in each area who have agreed to help with promotion but need more. Please contact Fanforce if you can help and they’ll send you material you can use for getting the message out.

It would be great if you could all promote this link on social media, and tell everyone you know with good contacts in these areas to help make this happen.

My main goal is to use these speaking events to get onto local media to spread the word about the issues I am passionate about, hopefully even getting on local ABC programmes which tend to be less captured by ideologues than their colleagues in the cities. I’ll be putting together a video showing you how it all works out.

If you’d like me to come and speak in your area, please contact Fanforce. I am particularly interested in travelling to rural areas, away from the major cities, because that way the events will attract more media interest. It looks like the next trip will be NSW and South Australia in early December –combining a few talks with a little bit of cycling. Yes, I am back on the bike – but obviously very carefully! We are driving from Sydney through to the Fleurieu Peninsula, so possible towns for speaking on the way could include Albury, Ballarat, Mildura, Geelong, with a definite stop in Temora, where I have family connections. The plan is pretty relaxed at the moment so if you live anywhere on this route or have good contacts in relevant areas, please let me know.

After that … well, I will come to anywhere in Australia where we have people on the ground to help promote the events, ideally with a couple of places for each trip.

Should be lots of fun. Cheers, Tina
