Where knowledge meets beer
20 Talks, 10 Bars, 1 Night

After sell-out talks in 2017, Raising the Bar is back on Wednesday 29 November for a night of thought-provoking events.

Raising the Bar is a worldwide initiative aimed at making education a part of a city's popular culture. And where best to do that but in a bar - 10 bars to be precise, spread across the city. The goal is to raise the bar on the content people consume with one of a kind, knowledge-driven events in unusual locations.

Having spread from New York to San Francisco, London, Sydney, Hong Kong and Auckland, this free event aims to broaden understanding and respect for Melbourne's diverse knowledge sector.

Raising the Bar
From RTB 2016

With topics ranging from how to think like a hacker, all you need to know about insect sex, fake news, jury duty in the 21st century and the cryptocurrency revolution, there is bound to be something that spark an interest and gets you thinking.

For example in Sects in the City , you'll learn how insects are the most abundant and diverse organisms on earth, and their success can be attributed to skilful reproduction. In every corner of our city, six-legged sex is taking place and Associate Professor Michelle Harvey, will excite and entertain you with the importance of insect sex to the biodiversity of our urban jungle. You'll never be able to look that dragonfly in the eye again.

Raising the Bar Melbourne is proudly brought to you by the City of Melbourne and aims to broaden understanding and respect for Melbourne's diverse knowledge sector and ensure learning be a lifelong process.
