In 2011 the Inglis Clark Centre ran the second SALON/SOUTH series – discussion salons exploring ideas and practical strategies for enhancing the economic, cultural and social vibrancy of Tasmania as we proceed through the twenty-first century. The first series was held in 2010.
SALON/SOUTH 2011 was delivered across Tasmania – CULTURE in Launceston, COMMUNITY in Burnie, and CAPITAL in Hobart. Almost one hundred Tasmanian agenda setters across industry, government, academia and the community and philanthropic sectors participated.
Sessions were run according to the Chatham House Rule, to encourage more frank and open debate. This ensured the participation of key political operatives, industry and community leaders and senior bureaucrats – and the expression of opinion and disagreement that would not necessarily occur constructively in more public and exposed contexts.
