Highlights A-Z
Fri Sat Sun
Talks Art Thought Experiments
Unforgivable
This is your chance to show how much you value our children, at an exclusive FODI event where you decide your own ticket price to hear the voices of Australia's youth.
Spinifex Gum, Seethal Bency, Dujuan Hoosan, Daisy Jeffrey, Audrey Mason-Hyde, Dylan Storer
Wrongful Justice
It took three decades – and a wrongful murder conviction – to get an official ruling that a dingo took Azaria. Now, Lindy looks back and talks about what she has learned.
Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton
The Uninhabitable Earth
The climate crisis is much worse than you think. Now is the moment for global damage control – but can we rise to the occasion?
David Wallace-Wells
The Butterfly Effect
A story about porn, but not in the way you've heard before. Ronson recounts his recent adventures, accompanied by some very strange video clips!
Jon Ronson
The Tyranny of Merit
What would it take to give everyone a fair shot at a good life? Is the first step admitting that those at the top don't necessarily deserve to be there?
Michael Sandel
Surveillance States
Whether you see Edward Snowden as a reluctant whistleblower or a dangerous traitor, he brought the impact of government surveillance systems to the world’s attention.
Edward Snowden
The Hitch
In this keynote event, Roxane Gay calls out her dangerous realities and shows why she's considered one the world's most brilliant commentators.
Roxane Gay
The World We Choose
Every action has power and every inaction gives that power to someone else. How hard are you really trying to change the world?
Peter Singer, Jane McAdam, David Wallace-Wells, Angie Abdilla
The Truth About China
Australia faces a fork in the road in our relationship with China. The path we take will have major consequences for our country's future.
Kevin Rudd, Yaqiu Wang, Vicky Xiuzhong Xu, Jason Yat-Sen Li
Manufacturing Inequality
As Australia’s education results slip further behind the rest of the world, is it finally time to deal with social inequality?
Pasi Sahlberg
Political Correct-Mess
Has political correctness gone too far, or do we need to accept that free speech doesn't give us the right to offend?
Van Badham, Kevin Donnelly, Osman Faruqi, Chris Kenny
The Future is History
Russia appears to again be playing the villain role, so what does Putin have planned for the world in 2020 and the US elections?
Masha Gessen
Tech: Capitalism's New Clothes
If Big Tech sees – and monetises – everything you do, perhaps there's no way to escape it without paying a price.
Evgeny Morozov
You Can't Handle the Truth
Why is Australia so scared to face the truth about our history?
Megan Davis
Editing Humans
With the power to edit our genes and control evolution ourselves, should we be worried that we could 'break' the human race?
Sam Sternberg
Climate Change is a Crime
Crimes have been committed against our planet. Is it time to call out those responsible and hold them to account?
Kajsa Ekis Ekman
Ageing is a Disease
Forget the assumption that getting old is inevitable. New science shows treating ageing as a disease might be the way to slow it down.
David Sinclair
Dangerous Futures
Join four brilliant minds as they share their predictions for some of the intriguing and wicked problems the world will face in the future.
Emma Jane, James Halstead, Lucas Lixinski, Michael Richardson
Sold Out
Hosting Humanity
Sold Out
Are technology platforms to blame for all online evils? Or is this a true representation of what humanity has become?
Evgeny Morozov, Mark Pesce
Buying Babies
If it's against the law to sell another human, why are we still allowed to effectively buy a baby through surrogacy?
Kajsa Ekis Ekman, Sarah Dingle
Selling Fast
Nuclear Deterrence Works
Selling Fast
Nuclear weapons embody humanity’s capacity for wanton destruction, but are they also the ultimate guarantor of national security?
STEPHAN FRÜHLING
The Consciousness Lie
What if we have tricked ourselves into believing we make our own decisions, rather than our subconscious urges driving our lives?
Joel Pearson
Ethics of the Apocalypse
Would you survive the end of the world? Here's your chance to discover what you're willing to sacrifice.
Carl Smith, Matt Beard
Sold Out
Give it Away Now
Sold Out
As you participate in this interactive social experiment, you'll get the chance to give away real money. There's just one catch…
Matt Beard
Pig
Pig is a large transparent pig. Inside it is a sign that reads: “This is a community fund, you can contribute to it if you like, and when you’ve agreed how to spend it you can open me and spend it.”
Kaleider
