Queenslanders in Conversation 2017

Queenslanders in Conversation 2017

Join us for a year of talks that explore some of the key issues around our digital future. Will it be a golden age or a time of inequality and hardship? What kind of work will we do in the future?  How will we actively participate in society? These are just some of the highly contentious topics we will consider.

Hosts from ABC Brisbane Radio will lead these interactive conversations, enabling alternative voices to be heard from the political and popular to the insightful and opinionated.

Check out the events below for upcoming talks in the series.
