More than just a repository for old things, every year Auckland Museum looks to the future with a series of thought provoking panel discussions and engaging live performances.

LATE at the Museum returns for its tenth season on the second Wednesday of every month from August to November. The series is known for creating dialogue around delicate and important issues, and this year's run will be no different. Questions posed during LATE 2017 will include: What does a "real New Zealander" look like? Who are our allies in a post-Trump world? How do we confront our privilege when we can't see it? Are we still a country prepared to stand up for our values?

Invisible Privilege is the third of this year's four events. Held on Wednesday 11 October, the panel will discuss the importance of owning our privilege — and the discomfort that comes with it — and using it to grow our awareness of inequality and call it out when we see it. Join Georgina Beyer, the ground-breaking former MP and Mayor of Carterton, journalist and academic Richard Pamatatau, activist Julia Amua Whaipooti, and artist and scholar Tāwhanga Nopera.

Alongside the panel discussion, the museum's current special exhibition Wildlife Photographer of the Year will be open later than usual from 6-9pm and a special food menu will be available for purchase.
