Melbourne's Wheeler Centre is coming to Sydney, bringing with it three a new talk series to be held monthly at the Belvoir Street Theatre. Each will focus on a particular big idea.

The first, happening on Monday 21 August, is all about anaesthesia. Journalist Kate Cole-Adams will be discussing her book Anaesthesia: The Gift of Oblivion and the Mystery of Consciousness with anaesthetist Tim McCulloch and Benjamin Law.

Meanwhile, September's chat, planned for Monday 18, will be dedicated to booze. Jenny Valentish, music writer and author of Woman of Substances, will be thrashing out alcohol's role in Australian identity, as well as its impact on people and public health, flanked by arts broadcaster Kate Jinx and medical researcher Michael Bowen.

Pop back on Monday, October 9 to hear barrister Julian Burnside discuss his commitment to asylum seekers and issues relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. He'll be joined by Benjamin Law and Kat Armstrong, former prisoner and CEO of the Women's Justice Network.
