Talk About Town: Where do you call home?
“The subject of the debate will be ‘Where do you call home?’ which was inspired by the fact that when I speak or listen to expats, I always hear them say: ‘When I go home…’ and very often these are people who already live in this region permanently.” says Anna Fill.
So the debate discusses the subject of ‘home’ and what it actually means. We will find out what makes people choose to live away from their homeland, work, sunshine, lifestyle, food, wine, love? We will hear all about it and so much more!
The event is about giving a voice to everyone. The more people engage the more interesting the evening becomes. We are also interested to hear from local people too and to hear their views on foreigners living here. On the flip side, talking with local people who have worked and lived abroad and then returned have another perspective, and this all becomes very fascinating.
The event will feature a panel of 4 people, professionals who have a great deal of contact with expats and can speak with authority about their experiences of living in a foreign country. Audience participation will make the event lively, interactive and a great deal of fun.
We can confirm the 4 members of our panel, Burton Gintell, President of The American Club of the Riviera, Petra Hall, Editor-in-chief of Riviera Times, Simon Verity from Blacktower Financial Management Group and our Special Guest, Carol Drinkwater, actress, author and filmmaker.
