What a couple of years it's been. Bushfires, floods, a global pandemic and responses from those in charge that have been disappointing to say the least. So where do we go from here? That's what this series of talks run by Sydney Festival and the UNSW Centre for Ideas is looking to address. The four-part series is pulling together a lineup of change-makers and beloved public figures to discuss the topics of misogyny, climate change, the pandemic and whether we're at a turning point towards a brighter future or a scary tipping point.

On the lineup you'll find a wide range of speakers. Journalists Sarah Dingle, Peter Hartcher and Stan Grant will be joined by marine biologist Emma Johnston and comedian Dan Illic for a discussion on the future of Australia. Presenter Yumi Stynes, ABC reporter Louise Milligan, law expert Gabrielle Appleby and former MP Julia Banks will discuss political misogyny before women's advocate and musician Jaguar Jonze performers her single 'Who Died and Made You King'. And, Benjamin Law will host a discussion on the multifaceted impacts of COVID between economist Richard Holden, business leader Sam Mostyn and youth advocate Yasmin Poole.

The talks will all be live-streamed as part of the festival's digital program, or you can head along in-person at the Sydney Town Hall for $25.
