Aspiring Conversations

After six years, including two cancelled Aspiring Conversation programmes, we're thrilled to share this year's outstanding lineup of speakers and artists.
In these challenging times, it's crucial to gather, discuss, listen, and reflect on issues impacting our community and the world. We're excited to have Kathryn Ryan back to chair several sessions, bringing her experience, warmth, and wit to enrich our conversations.
Heartfelt thanks to our supporters, funders, benefactors, and patrons—without you, this programme wouldn't be possible!
