A live art event led by neurodiverse young people.
Genius invites you into a series of immersive encounters with eight unique thinkers, where each Genius will present their perspective on the topic of their expertise.
Did you know that Prince Bernard gave Ian Flemming ideas for the creation of James Bond? That Gough Whitlam was the Prime Minister for a mere 1701 days? Or that an American, Robert Porter “Bob” McKimson, gave the Tasmanian Devil world wide fame, through brining his illustration, Taz, into Looney Tunes?
With subjects ranging from Royal Families of the World, Australian Animals, Linguistics, 21st Century Fashion and Gough Whitlam, this event is a unique opportunity to see life through an alternative lens – a surprising, eclectic walk through the inner – workings of a group of exceptional minds.
