16-17 October, 2015 | The University of Sydney
Welcome to the 2015 Festival of Democracy.
Join us at the University of Sydney for two days of exciting talks, debates and art focused squarely on the new, challenging and dangerous political trends facing all democracies today.
The Festival is open to all, and there’s something for everybody.
There will be contributions on citizens under surveillance, the Spanish democratic laboratory, the plight of the Rohingya, and radioactive waste dumping.
Come and discuss continuous political campaigning; activism and the role of professionals; constitutional recognition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples; China and Antarctica; and the high voltage between despair and defiance.
