The Festival of Questions
Treat yourself to The Festival of Questions – a day of storytelling, comedy, debate, discussion and … possible disarray. We’ll open our minds and mind the whole world’s business. #festivalofQs
Treat yourself to The Festival of Questions – a series of thoughtful, quick-witted and exhilarating discussions that will change how you see the world. It’s one whole day of querying, questioning, wondering and asking why.
In four sessions across one day, we’ll bring together some of the sharpest and funniest thinkers we know. They’ll wrestle with the big questions facing Australia, and the world, today. Think: culture, class and climate; politics and punditry; philosophy and feminism. What are the issues that divide and unite us? Do terms like ‘right wing’ and ‘left wing’ still have meaning today? Is the world changing too fast, or not fast enough?
Join us for a day of storytelling, comedy, debate, discussion and … possible disarray. We’ll open our minds and mind the whole world’s business. #festivalofQs
