The Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment’s Cairns Great De­bate is an an­nual busi­ness event that ex­am­ines a se­ri­ous topic in a fun en­vi­ron­ment – all in sup­port of a lo­cal char­ity. It pits two teams of lo­cal busi­ness per­son­al­i­ties (in­clud­ing Cairn­sEye stylist Ger­linda Stella (above) against each other in what has de­vel­oped over the years into a com­edy de­bate rather than se­ri­ous dis­course. This year’s topic, Money is the root of all evil, is sure to be a great con­ver­sa­tion starter. The event is from noon2.30pm at the Pull­man In­ter­na­tional Cairns.

The con­cert will takek youo on a mu­si­cal jour­ney show­cas­ing glo­ri­ous im­ages of the Christ­mas story and fes­tiv­i­ties through­out the world ac­com­pa­nied by mu­sic and singing. The con­cert fea­tures the renowned Cairns Cho­ral So­ci­ety choir, lead­ing soloists, ex­cit­ing en­sem­bles, the Ju­lia Macalpine dancers, and the an­gelic singing of Joanne Wright’s ac­claimed Cairns Young Voices.

Yuki Ki­hara is an In­ter­dis­ci­plinary artist whose work en­gages in a va­ri­ety of so­cial, po­lit­i­cal and cul­tural is­sues. Of­ten ref­er­enc­ing Pa­cific his­tory, her work ex­plores the re­la­tion­ships be­tween gen­der, race, cul­ture and pol­i­tics. An­drew Bonneau is a young artist who lives and works in Cairns. For Bonneau, a por­trait is the most in­ter­est­ing and chal­leng­ing sub­ject. Sim­i­lar to por­traits of the Re­nais­sance pe­riod, Bonneau’s painted fig­ures with their clas­si­cal poses and sub­tle use of light and shadow em­body much of a clas­si­cal re­al­ist tra­di­tion. An­gela Meyer brings to­gether European and East­ern tra­di­tions in her own colour­ful and dra­matic style. An­gela re­sponds to the paint­ings of Michelan­gelo’s Flood, The Fall and The Creation. She play­fully ap­pro­pri­ates Ger­i­cault’s Raft of the Me­dusa and Da Vinci’s Vir­gin of the Rocks.
