Kick, Push, Coast to a Better Future Past Event

Presented by MPavilion

Skateboarding has long had a reputation for being a rebellious sub-culture—but it’s something much more meaningful than that. The skateboarding community continues to prove that this little wooden toy on wheels can be a force for good.

Join us while we explore the social impact of skateboarding—as we chat to a diverse range of skate panellists, each doing their bit to make the world a better place, one kick-push at a time.

Speakers include:

  • Kirby Clark, Decks for Change;
  • Nicky Hayes, founder of Spinifex Skateboards;
  • Dr Indigo Willing, sociologist and co-author of the forthcoming book Skateboarding, Power and Change;
  • Wade Trevean, director of skatepark design practice Eastbywest and The Skatepark School.
