The Festival of Ideas is designed to capture and express the unique ability of the higher education sector to contribute to our national and global conversations. Encompassing the broad themes of science, health and society, the 2013 Festival will impact on our city and nation with thought provoking debates and events.
We welcome your feedback on how we can make the 2013 Festival a wonderful success - and a source of dynamic discussion for you!
Director, 2013 Festival of Ideas
For the 2013 festival we welcome our new Director, Professor Fiona Stanley AC, who will lead us on a stimulating journey through key health issues of concern to Australians at the present moment. Fiona and the Festival team are assembling a powerful international guest list to deliver keynote speeches, debates, performances and fringe activities. Leading Australian academics, intellectuals and thought leaders will engage with audiences and participants on the themes of these keynotes, inviting input and discussion on the health of our bodies, minds, society, economy and democracy.
