Game changers: in conversation with Damian Griffiths

The Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame celebrates, records and retells the stories of outstanding Queensland business leaders and their contributions to our state.

Facilitated by Ray Weekes, Chair of The CEO Institute, the Game Changers series brings innovation leaders from business, technology, and creative industries to share their insights with aspiring Queensland entrepreneurs. This is your chance to ask how local entrepreneurs and business leaders build companies, reinvent themselves generation after generation, inspire teams, and envision success.

Immigration lawyer turned entrepreneur Damian Griffiths has been shaping and challenging Brisbane’s social landscape for the past six years. Dubbed the ‘godfather of bar culture’, Damian is the name behind the boutique Limes Hotel, popular hybrid dining/cocktail experience Alfred and Constance and the unique new Chester Street Bakery and Bar.

Starting from humble beginnings Damian moved from the country Queensland town of Dalby to Brisbane to pursue his passion for travel, boutique hotels and budget accommodation. In five years from when Limes Hotel first opened, Damian has turned a quiet fringe area of Fortitude Valley to a true entertainment precinct. His unique approach sees the heightening of national and international attention of Brisbane’s hospitality scene and his vision continues to expand across Brisbane.

A Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame initiative presented by SLQ, QUT Business School and the Queensland Library Foundation.

Date: Wed, 23 July 2014
Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Anti war: rethinking the twentieth century

From the Boer War to now, it is hardly controversial to say that modern history has been marked by war and its legacies. But what if we examine the long twentieth century from a different vantage point, through an anti-war lens? Because being anti-war is not new, but it takes a particular type of courage to pursue. So how does the twentieth century look from a perspective of opposition to war, and what can it tell us today? How has warfare been experienced, remembered and resisted, and by whom, in the past? And why should that vibrant, painful history be important to us today? Listen to this panel to learn more about the history of anti-war, from Brisbane anti-conscription in World War One, to civilian memories in World War Two, to international networks working to secure world peace in our region and around the world.

In this panel chaired by Kate Evans (Radio National), three leading historians and a leading political scientist talk about their work on gender, war and memory in Europe; internationalists and pacifism in the interwar Asia-Pacific; Aboriginal Australian internationalism in Europe; and the human cost of modern warfare today.

Supported by the Australian Historical Association and the Centre for Cultural Research, Griffith University.

Speakers - Professor Karen Hagemann; Professor Neta Crawford; Associate Professor Fiona Paisley; Associate Professor Victoria Haskins; Facilitator: Dr Kate Evans

Date: Wednesday, 9 July 2014
Time: 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Venue: Auditorium 1, State Library of Queensland

A night in the JOL: The Johnstone Gallery

The Johnstone Gallery operated in Brisbane from 1950–72, a seminal time in the development of an audience for contemporary art in Australia. The gallery represented major Australian artists of the period, including Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd and Margaret Olley. Upon its closure, Marjorie Johnstone bequeathed the records of the gallery to SLQ and they are amongst our most valuable resources on art in Queensland.

Join Ian Townsend from ABC Radio National as he leads a discussion with gallerist and former Assistant Director of the Johnstone Gallery, Victor Mace, and Simon Elliott, Assistant Director Curatorial and Educational Services, National Gallery of Australia who attended the Johnstone Gallery as a child.
