Event description

Description

The popular Festival of Ambitious Ideas is on again, celebrating Canberra’s innovators, game-changers and status quo challengers.

As we approach the end of 2017, we will be celebrating some of the individuals and organisations working on innovative projects from a range of different sectors - technology, social enterprises, young entrepreneurs, creative industries, government and academia.

The Festival of Ambitious Ideas follows the Ignite format where our speakers only have 5 minutes each to present their ideas and ‘ignite’ the audience. In a little over an hour, guests are treated to a range of different ideas and perspectives. The event is designed to be fast-paced, informal and fun.

If you're interested in innovation, big ideas and passionate people who are game to try new things and keen to share their experiences; then this is the event for you!

  • Elizabeth Scott, Canberra Academy of Dramatic Art (CADA)

  • Dr Joseph Winter, Australian Institute of Sport (AIS)
