The Forum

Smash through more podcasts than coffees on the daily commute? Dissect Facebook comments quicker than you can say ‘Zuckerberg?’ Hold onto your train driver hats, because The Splendour Forum returns for its tenth year of boundary-pushing and thought-provoking realness in 2019!

Take a seat in The Forum and prepare to rest and digest on some big ideas from big names from all walks of life. Step into the dark world of tech dystopia with Dr Karl, Brenna Harding and Dr Niels Wouters, hear from a powerful Indigenous panel on creating a way forward to empower First Nations People, catch Marc Fennell as he delves deep into the lives of some of the world’s most interesting performers or put your feet up during a screening of Mystify: Michael Hutchence.  So prepare to rub shoulders (and minds) with some of the coolest and most remarkable personalities to hit Australia, as they tackle topics from all corners of the social spectrum.
