On the night
Since 2009 Festival of Dangerous Ideas has brought you an independent, feisty, thought-provoking festival. Striving to bring you bold speakers, artists and experiences that were unexpected, perhaps uncomfortable but always unerringly authentic. You’ve turned up in droves to do danger with us. Thank you.
It’s 2023. Has there been a more urgent time for us to hold space for daring thought and respectful conversations about difficult topics? It’s one year until FODI is slated to take over Carriageworks in Winter 2024. We’ve never shied away from truth. So, here’s our dangerous truth: FODI need funds to get there.
Thank you for your part in making this happen. See you at the feast.
Oh you can’t dine with us this time? Never fear, you can always make a contribution right now right HERE.
In the unlikely event that Festival of Dangerous Ideas does not proceed in 2024, the funds will be used by The Ethics Centre, presenter of FODI, to explore dangerous topics through other events or content.
