Eureka Soapbox

Eureka is one of Australia’s highly contested historical events. Eureka Centre are bringing some of Eureka’s most polarising issues to you through an exciting new format: Eureka Soapbox. Join them in their auditorium to hear expert guest speakers argue for their side of a contested argument. Five audience members will then pitch in with their five-minute soapbox response.


‘Where should the Eureka Flag reside: the Art Gallery of Ballarat or the Eureka Centre?’

Dr Anne Beggs-Sunter – Author, researcher and Lecture in History at Federation University Ballarat

Ron Egeberg – Past Director, Eureka Stockade Centre


‘What is the preeminent Eureka artefact: the Ballarat Reform League Charter or The Eureka Flag?’

Brett Edgington – Secretary, Ballarat Trades Hall

Jennifer Beacham – Historian, Ballarat Trades Hall

Both Sessions are free and there is no need to book.

Have your say

If you are interested in ‘mounting the stump’, then please register interest prior to the event. Email no later than Friday 15th November and briefly state: which question you would like to respond to, what your stance is and what you would discuss in your allotted five minutes. Only pre-selected speakers will have the opportunity to talk.
