ABOUT

The Institute of Interesting Ideas (I3) is founded on the principle that life is for learning, and that we are all simultaneously teachers and students.
I3 is committed to sparking provocative and stimulating conversations by presenting the most interesting speakers Australia has to offer.

From entertainers & journalists, scientists & master chefs, authors & musicians and beyond…I3 will challenge, provoke, inspire and dare our audience to see the world differently.

If I3 had a motto, it would be: get stuck in!

We believe in leaning into the conversation, asking that uncomfortable question, moving the dialogue forward and walking away from an evening feeling impacted and changed for the better.

Our line-up of speakers come from all walks of life and take to our stage to share their stories, wisdom and ideas with honesty & humour.
