The Imperfects Live in the Vulnerabilitea House

Founder of The Resilience Project, Hugh van Cuylenburg, his brother Josh van Cuylenburg and comedian Ryan Shelton (neither of their brothers), are welcoming you to pour yourself a cup of Vulnerabilitea and join us for a very special night, live, in the Vulnerabilitea House.

Thursday 15 August | 6.30pm | GPAC Main Theatre

Taking the popular podcast format to the stage, it’s a night that will make you laugh, feel and think, as Hugh, Ryan and Josh get vulnerable, in order to build authentic connections and improve wellbeing.

Receiving more than a million downloads each month, The Imperfects is an Australian podcast about how perfectly imperfect we all are.
Comparing ourselves to others is not only exhausting, it’s extremely harmful.

However, when we share our struggles, we start to realise that everyone, no matter how successful, has something they are battling with. The Imperfects aims to teach, inspire and share stories of vulnerability so we can all be happier, build authentic connections and become more resilient.

This night will be a celebration of vulnerability and connection. Come and join the fun and embrace the imperfection.
