See you at the Consumer Voice Soapbox in the Story Tent. Part of the Festival of Now, Friday 12 October from 10.30 am to 3 pm at Light Square.
For the first time ever, under one beautiful ‘bell tent’, the Consumer Voice Program at Relationships Australia SA will present the largest showcase of Consumer Voice speakers. They will share their stories and by doing so will raise awareness about gambling issues, challenging negative stigma, and explore the intersection between mental health issues and gambling harm.
All are invited to attend the ‘Story Tent’ and be part of the soapbox speakers’ corner during Mental Health Week (7-13 October) at the Festival of Now. Come along, get comfortable in a peaceful atmosphere and listen to a story or two.
The Consumer Voice speakers will be wearing ‘Ask Me’ badges and are happy for you to engage with them and ask them questions about their story.
