    Step into a sanctuary at FODI 2024

    Festival of Dangerous Ideas (FODI) returns to Carriageworks on 24-25 August 2024. 

    Presented by The Ethics Centre, FODI is Australia’s original disruptive festival, known for being at the zeitgeist of ideas. FODI will bring thought-leaders and artists from across the globe to fuel critical thinking, challenge preconception, provide information and spark conversations. 

    Offering a haven for exploration and a harbour for the curious, FODI 2024's theme, Sanctuary allows audiences to engage with the ideas behind the headlines of the 24 hour news cycle. In a litany of entrenched ideas, shallow information and self-censorship, we desperately need a space where we can engage with challenging ideas in good faith.

    FODI 2024 is an opportunity to hear powerful and provocative speakers from around the world talk on important and rousing topics. And also a space, a sanctuary, where audiences can engage with these ideas in a way that we, unfortunately, can’t in the wild. In FODI's Sanctuary you are safe from hype and safe to listen and to ask questions.

    Donate to make FODI happen in 2024

    Since 2009 the Festival of Dangerous Ideas, or FODI to its fans, has curated thought-provoking topics and new approaches to wicked problems.

    FODI brings bold speakers, artists and experiences together in ways that are unexpected, and yes, sometimes a bit uncomfortable, but we are always unerringly authentic.

    Never shying away from truth, Festival of Dangerous Ideas needs funds to go ahead in 2024.

    This festival of international significance is expensive to deliver. In order to keeping ticket prices low so that it’s accessible, FODI's non-profit, independence is both an asset and a challenge.

    For the first time ever, FODI is asking its fans to help keep them in the game. Your donation will go directly to helping FODI pay deposits to lock in the best speakers and artists from around the world for 2024.

    FODI supporters think about the future and who want to play a role in shaping it. Is that you?
