Truth, trust, tech, tattoos and the taboo: Australia’s original disruptive festival, the Festival of Dangerous Ideas is back!

Truth, trust, tech, tattoos and the taboo: Australia’s original disruptive festival, the Festival of Dangerous Ideas (FODI), has a compelling and incisive in-person program of big ideas, dicey topics and critical conversations. A razor sharp line-up of thinkers, artists, experts and disruptors from around the world and across Australia will converge on Sydney, to dissect and discuss the spikiest and most pressing issues of our time in a huge weekend of panels, talks and events at Carriageworks from 17 – 18 September. 

UNSW Sydney is proud to be the Principal Partner of FODI, showcasing UNSW academics and students on FODI stages. Explore the events below to see sessions featuring UNSW academics and students.
