The Festival of Dangerous Ideas is hosting a new digital series of talks with some of the world’s greatest thinkers, tackling the dangerous ideas of a burning world, government control of information and Australia’s history.

The digital series of talks take place during a period of heightened fear and anxiety. The global pandemic has superheated three systemic problems that were already set to boil over: government surveillance, racism and climate change.

The three sessions will be live streamed with live interaction and questions from the audience.

Live stream sessions include:

- Dangerous Fictions, Marcia Langton, 10 September 2020, 7PM
Langton is a fearless truth-teller who challenges the dangerous orthodoxies of a society that seems incapable of making peace with the truth of its own past.

- Surveillance States, Edward Snowden, 24 September 2020, 7PM
Snowden asks us to consider the possibility that we may have more to fear from our own governments than from any external threat – and that our liberties have already been lost.

- The Uninhabitable Earth, David Wallace-Wells, 11 October 2020, 11AM
Wallace-Wells says there is no going back from the climate crisis and suggests the greatest challenge is navigating the future in a world that cannot agree how to face it together.
