It brings together some of the sharpest and funniest thinkers around for a day of querying, questioning, wondering and pondering.

They'll be discussing the big questions facing Australia, and the world, today. What are the big issues? What unites and divides us? What are we talking and thinking about? Topics will cover a broad range of issues from culture, class and climate to politics, philosophy and feminism.
