Festival of Ambitious Ideas: The Art of the Ordinary  

Thursday 16 May 2019, 5:30pm - 8:30pm

The Festival of Ambitious Ideas showcases some of the innovative organisations and initiatives in Canberra across a variety of sectors.

The theme for this event is 'The Art of the Ordinary'. For this theme we took inspiration from those businesses, projects and ideas transforming the everyday in artful and surprising ways.

Come and hear from some of our local innovators turning the ordinary into extraordinary in tourism, medicine, property, environment, finance, real estate, media and more.

Following the Ignite format, our speakers will have only 5 minutes each to tell their story and 'ignite' the audience.

Our speakers for this Festival are:

Thor Diesendorf - Thor's Hammer

Michelle Templin and Colleen Cooper – Ladybird Play

Zarko Danilov - Head of Projects at Canberra Airport

Dr Reena Ghildyal – University of Canberra
