JULIAN ASSANGE HEADLINES PROVOCATIVE ROUND TABLE TO DISCUSS HOW WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
Written on the 16 August 2017
CALLING all disrupters, thinkers, activists and provocateurs.
What would you change about the world you live in? If you could implement a rule, law or protocol to bring this change to fruition, what would it be?
Join some of the world's most compelling thought leaders and cultural performers for two days of stimulating speeches, expert responses and rigorous discussion at 2970° The Boiling Point: Practising Democracy to be held at the Gold Coast Arts Centre from 7-9 September.
This year's line-up features Julian Assange, the world's first true internet radical who used the web to transform the relationship between the weak and the powerful; Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro, one of the world's foremost experts on robots and androids; author, presenter and political commentator Jamila Rizvi, who has worked as a senior adviser in Federal politics to former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Minister Kate Ellis; and Kyle Slabb, who has ancestral ties with the Gudjinburra, Bundjalung and Yugambeh people and is an advocate for Indigenous cultural frameworks.
Each of these keynote speakers will ignite our democratic instincts with humour, intelligence and some massively big ideas.
In the spirit of Practising Democracy, you can join in the General Assembly to debate and vote upon a rule, law or protocol proposed by each of these four provocateurs.
Held on the Gold Coast every two years, 2970° is more than a festival of ideas and art. It is a cultural provocation that inspires future-focused conversation. Take part in the conversation and join us for Practising Democracy.
