Disrupted Festival of Ideas is a weekend of FREE EVENTS including:
Keynotes and activities taking over the State Library of Western Australia
This festival is presented by the State Library of Western Australia. It is now in its fifth year and Disrupted will again challenge and inspire the way we think, with this year having the focus on technology and the impact that it has on our society.
Currently in this day and age, speaking technologically, nothing is impossible. However, while we are creating life-improving and life-saving advancements in the health arena, for example, it is sharply bringing together issues such as false news and data privacy. Questions being asked are what does this say about us as individuals, communities and a society?
This year's line-up of keynote speakers include anthropologists, writers, journalists and scientists. They will delve into the issues and queries of our 21st-century problems.
Our main State Library has always been an important creative hub for people to meet, learn and fathom out new ideas and technology. Disrupted builds on this foundation to create a life-changing weekend of research, discovery, imagination and curiosity, across a range of experiences.
Technology seems to move even faster than we can keep up with it in many ways. But one question is how does this technology affect the way we communicate, form relationships, and develop as a society?
The 2018 Disrupted Festival of Ideas will look at technology in several of its forms, from the easy to the difficult. Disrupted Festival of Ideas gathers experts from around the country to hold discussions about the state of the world through panels, conversations and keynotes.
All events are FREE to the general public with no registration required, with the exception of some workshops and activities. This festival will be on Saturday 28th and 29th July.
This will be held on Saturday at 12.30 pm, in the Discovery Lounge.

This will be on Sunday at 12.30 pm, in the Discovery Lounge.
