Event description

Description

"Everyday things can have beauty, but we don't always see it."

Festival of Ambitious Ideas showcases some of the innovative businesses and initiatives in Canberra across a variety of sectors.

The theme for this Festival is ‘The Art in Everyday’. Our twelve speakers from a range of industries and sectors will challenge you to see the art in everyday life; from multimedia and video production, architecture and city planning, industrial design, food, lifestyle, photography and art. Our speakers will talk about the influence of the aesthetic and the practical when it comes to their businesses and projects.

The Festival of Ambitious Ideas follows the Ignite format where each speaker only has 5 minutes 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 with opportunities to network and explore topics further after the presentations.
