Getting straight to the point, there's a lot to cover in 4 days, from 12-15 July 2018 at the Adelaide Festival of Ideas. Some 90 invited thinkers and doers are heading your way with a series of mainly free (though free, some may require registration/booking), and a handful of ticketed events that'll blow your mind. Who's at the wheel? is an apt question to ask in an age of machines, and it may just get uncomfortable in the passenger seat.

Don't give up your licence to Siri just yet. Head to events held at various venues and locations and get involved in this rare, amazing opportunity for shared wisdom from scientists of all kinds, policy wonks, social and environmental activists, journalists, former politicians, architects, historians, economists, educationalists, theologians, artists and diverse futurists. See the full program here. Explore sessions by speakers, special events, ticketed events, orations, solo events, panels, in conversation or workshops.

Children's fiction writer Morris Gleitzman

Keep checking the Facebook page for current flow of conversation, updates and individual events as well. One of which has children's fiction writer Morris Gleitzman ponder the role of the narrative in young lives. Do young people need stories more than ever in a more anxious and angry global nervous system? Can stories help equip young readers with optimism, resolve and creativity in often dark and uncertain times? Why not join former NASA astronaut Pam Melroy, one of only two women to have commanded the Space Shuttle, as she shares her cosmic experiences and the future of human space exploration.

This year's festival is dedicated to Robyn Archer, a singer, mentor and grande dame of the arts in the nation, with an energy and intellectual generosity that's unstoppable. She's been recognised by AFoI 2018's dedication as custom, for her extraordinary contribution to public life and the world of ideas.

Celebrate the life of the mind, the value of ideas, thinking and innovation. Get your head out of the internet Cloud and into the foundations of civil society, an informed democracy and a robust economy.
