What made you ask this question? Why does it matter to you? Why should others care about it?

What's more important: answers, or questions? Are the ‘big’ questions - life, the universe, everything - more important than ‘little’ ones? Does a good question provoke debate or laughter, lead to certain answers or create reflective pause? Can it change laws, minds or lives? Are questions the best answers?

The Interrobang – a new festival from the Wheeler Centre – is looking for the best questions in the world.

Ask your questions and vote on others, then join us on 27 – 28 November for a feast of frequently unanswered questions – as we present your most controversial, revealing, funny and insightful ideas to a 25-strong Brains Trust of the world’s most inquisitive thinkers.

Pose your burning question below. We’ll build this festival on your curiosity, so brace yourself – and wonder hard.


By submitting a question, you'll be entered into the draw to win one of three double passes to the festival!

Vote on Questions

Vote on questions to be put to the Brains Trust, and help us build a festival out of your curiosity.


The Brains Trust

On 27–28 November, your best questions will be answered – or questioned further – by 25 of the world's most inquisitive artists, writers, policy-makers, scientists, thinkers, foodies, activists and comedians. In a series of events across two days, your questions will serve as the fuel for conversations that traverse fields and genres.

The Festival

The Interrobang is a first: a festival shaped entirely by the public. You ask the questions, you vote on questions, and your questions direct and shape the discussions on stage.

When and where?

Through 27–28 November, you'll find The Interrobang spilling between the Regent Theatre, the Athenaeum and Collins Street Baptist Church in Melbourne's CBD.

Bookings open from 12 October; we need to give you time to ask and vote on questions, first. If you'd like us to remind you when they're available, sign up to our newsletter.
