Disrupted Festival of Ideas

This event has passed!

DISRUPTED PROGRAM RELEASED

Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, Leigh Sales, Prof Geoff Gallop, Dr Tracy Westerman and Bri Lee to present

The truth. Can it be subjective? Manipulated? Changed by opinion? And will it really set you free? 

The free Disrupted Festival of Ideas takes place at the State Library of WA on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 July.

Keynote speakers, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, Leigh Sales, Prof Geoff Gallop, Dr Tracy Westerman, Bri Lee and a host of national and local guests feature in a program of events that will inspire conversation, provoke ideas and encourage change.

Through keynotes, panels and intimate conversations you are invited to join the debate on truth - discover how to harness your own truth, better understand your brain and spot fake news. Learn the fascinating history behind mistruths, lies, and other forms of manipulation and how your library can be a powerful weapon in the fight against truth distortion, bias and agenda.

A keynote by 2018 Western Australian of the Year, Dr Tracy Westerman will tell the truth about indigenous mental health, and Australia's most loved science communicator, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki will embark on a deep historical dive to uncover the mistruths that have infiltrated our every day.

Award-winning journalist and author and host of ABC TV’s 7:30 Report, Leigh Sales, will discuss her new book, Any Ordinary Day investigating how ordinary people endure the unthinkable and are forced to explore their own truth in the face of adversity. 

More than 10,000 people are expected to attend Disrupted in person and online.

All Disrupted events are free but registration is required for some sessions. Keynote and panel sessions will be live-streamed.
