Dr Gill Hicks at the Orange Civic Theatre
Dr Gill Hicks is widely considered one of the world's most thought-provoking, powerful and life-affirming speakers. Her vital work, particularly in countering violent extremism, became her focus after she was left severely and permanently injured from the actions of a suicide bomber in the attack on London’s transport network in 2005.
Prior to the bombings, Gill was a respected figure within the fields of Architecture and Design in London, from Publisher of Blueprint to Director of Dangerous Minds Design and then Head Curator at the Design Council, Gill was and has continued to be recognized and awarded for her many contributions to the Arts, Health care and Peace Building.
A published author, musician, artist and mother, Gill’s appreciation and gratitude for life is prevalent, she is certainly a living testament to determination, courage and resilience.
Gill shares what she has learned about herself, humanity and the extraordinary and inherent ability to rise in the wake of adversity.
Dr Gill Hicks will be speaking at the Orange Civic Theatre Friday, 3 May, 11am and 7.30pm.
