Event description

Description

IQ2 makes public debate smart, civil and fun.

Get your 2019 season pass and be a part of the movement that’s putting respect and intelligence into Australian life.

This year IQ2 is exploring:

  • If Australia can take more immigrants
  • Our ageist obsession with youth
  • Whether men and boys are in crisis
  • The state of our democracy

IQ2 is an international debate series and The Ethics Centre presents the Australian arm. Two teams of two people argue for and against a motion. The rules? Use passion, humour, whatever your style, but keep it above the belt. The aim? Guests try convince you to vote for their team – the audience can directly question and challenge the debatersand you decide who wins. Is your mind open to being changed?

IQ2 takes place in the iconic, heritage listed Sydney Town Hall, the civic centre of the city and perfect place for public debate.

Rise above ideological echo chambers and public shaming of anyone with a different point of view. Engage with those you disagree with or don’t yet understand. Know your self and know your world. Be intelligent.

Tickets for each individaul debate will be sent 48hrs prior the event itself.
