Content and events from The Ethics Centre and FODI


On May 9-10 weekend FODI hosted a series of digital conversations called FODI Digital. The series of online conversations took inspiration from the original FODI 2020 theme of ‘Dangerous Realities’.

Nine online sessions were streamed FREE via the Festival website. Check out the full program on the home page.

FODI Digital On Demand videos are now up on our YouTube channel. More videos to be added as soon as they become available. Sign up to our e-newsletter for all the latest info and updates.
