Our recent political leaders are too busy fighting egos, within their own parties as well as the opposition’s, to get down and make some inspired choices for the future of Australians. There’s no long term planning because of all the navel-gazing and it’s embarrassing! Australia could be a world leader with the great minds we have in this country, and the freedom to voice ideas, and yet none of this seems to float to the top, where the decisions get made.
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.
