Didn't get a ticket? Can't make it to the event?

The 2017 Hypothetical "Who Killed Sharon Swallows?" will be broadcast live on Melbourne's Channel 31 and live streamed on VAC's Facebook page.

The VAC Hypothetical is back and this year things are getting criminal with Who Killed Sharon Swallows? Join us for a fresh line up of panelists as they're woven into a fictional storyline to tackle a range of social issues faced by our community. Hosted by Adam Richard, the night is a highlight to the Midsumma line up. 

In 2015, VAC reintroduced a new generation to the hypothetical-style event during the Midsumma Festival with "MJ Loves Tina, Charlie's Chasing Harry". The event format made popular on Australian television by Geoffrey Robertson in the 1980s sees a moderator guide a panel of media personalities, community advocates, politicians and medical experts through a "hypothetical" story line. Along the way, the panelists are woven into the story and are faced with questions on a range of social issues. In 2016, we built on the success of the previous year's hypothetical - taking it to the Deakin Edge and having nearly 300 people turn up for "2021: A Queer Odyssey".

This is a FREE event but spaces are limited so you need to book tickets.
UPDATE 16/01/2017:  Tickets for this year's Hypothetical are SOLD OUT.
