Are we on the cusp of a golden age for humanity? Or are we teetering on a precipice of doom?

This is a question I think everyone should be asking. Your answer to it determines the way you behave in every day life. Optimism breeds a belief that it’s worth getting out there to act on making the world a better place. Pessimism makes us apathetic, and causes us to retreat into dark corners

Asked by:

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.

So pose your burning questions. We’ll build this festival on your curiosity, so brace yourself – and wonder hard.
