Art vs Science
Thursday night social
MONA – Museum of Old and New Art. Join us for this night at the museum as we debate, ‘Art vs Science.’
Will you side with the classics and declare yourself a fan of the of the Mona Lisa, Van Goh’s Starry Night or maybe you’re a Da Vinci or Michelangelo yourself? We welcome the old masters but then, when you’re hanging out at MONA you’ve got to be prepared for something seriously… abstract. No, we’re not looking at you Picasso, you sly dog, we’re thinking way outside the circle here! Art is not limited to a canvas, so express something, anything! Channel your inner artist and create a costume that reveals the meaning of the universe! (42). But please, let it not be too revealing, we’re not sure how we feel about all those old naked statues (ahem, David… pls).
Or maybe, you’re an intellectual with minimal damage from apples falling on your head in moments of enlightenment? We welcome those who search for the answers within the safety of systematic study and objective evidence. So welcome to the Einsteins as well as the flat earthers (P value >0.05, but nice try). Will you chose to prove your action potential on the dance floor or are you more keen on physical sciences and exploring the Big Bang Theory tonight? Science is all around us, be you a believer in physics and astronomy, chemistry or biology or psychology, we call you to state your case to us this evening.
So who will arise as the powerhouse of the night? We’ll see you at MONA for this battle between subjective and objective!
Into the Fires Below
Sunday night social
7 July 2019
To greet you when you journey south we’ll be kicking off our week of scintillating socials on Sunday night, so brace yourself for a baptism of fire as we take you “Into the Fires Below.”
Descend past the burning pits with caution as through the gates, awaits, the fiery inferno of our Convention underworld. Fearsome foes may lurk in the darkness so watch out as the banished below now surface from the flames.. They say the devil is in the detail but tonight he might just be walking amongst us. In this waking nightmare the monster from under your bed may finally grab you (consensually of course), your worst fear may be realised, and warning, you may see dead people.
We can’t wait to feel the burn with you because this party will be lit.
See you there and till next time, stay social!

Playmates and Childhood Greats
Monday night social
8 July 2019
2, 4, 6, 8, time for a fresh update.
The next theme that awaits is,
‘Playmates and Childhood Greats’ !
Now now, girls and boys, listen up! For this#socialsunday we’re dropping Monday’s theme. After an awesome day with the Academic Team, come to our version of after school care to make childhood great again!
No need to have an excuse to indulge your inner child because tonight, we’re pulling out the whole toybox.
Leave adulthood at the door and if you have a signed permission slip, we’ll let you in on this trip down memory lane. Whether you were the shy kid in the corner dreaming of space exploration, the video game gunner or a ballerina wishing to tangle with her crush during a game of twister, this is the night to make sure you fulfill those childhood dreams. Tonight we shall honour the friendships we lost to monopoly, the injuries sustained from stepping on lego or our crush on Ken that we were never able to act upon.
Warning, there may be boy germs and girl germs, be sure not to catch ’em all.
Till next time, keep out of trouble Rangers and, stay social!
Queens of the Screen
Tuesday night social
9 July 2019
On Tuesday you’ll need to clean yourself up, don the tux and heels because we’ll be in company of royalty. Join us and come walk the red carpet alongside the ‘Queens of the Screen.’
We’re having a night at the cinema! Someone grab the popcorn and freshen that breath because you might be in for true love’s first kiss. Travel back in time and have Breakfast at Tiffany’s or fan girl over Marilyn before coming Back to the Future to your Netflix favourite. During this movie madness the stars of the silver screen surround you at every turn, be they animated friends or from a time the world ends, rom com classics or something Jurassic, tonight Convention is screening them all! We’re just going la la about the possibilities.
Plus, somewhere over the rainbow you might find other queens strutting their stuff, because we’re not in Kansas anymore. Whether you’re a queen of the desert, drag race or dance floor this is the night for you!
Note. You shall not pass(out) but if you do, E.T phone welfare. That’ll do pig, that’ll do.
