FESTIVAL OF IDEAS AND KŌRERO
4-7 April 2024

Welcome to Aspiring Conversations!

We're thrilled to present this year's impressive lineup of speakers and artists to inspire, entertain, challenge and engage your thinking and discussion kōrero.

In these challenging times, gathering, discussing, listening, and reflecting on community and global issues is more important than ever. We're excited to have Kathryn Ryan back to chair several sessions, her experience, warmth, and wit enrich our conversations.

Peruse the programme, purchase your tickets - tickets go on sale Friday 2nd Feb 8.30am - and we look forward to seeing you at Aspiring Conversations 2024.
