Our friends, Brisbane Writers Festival, are presenting the INSPIRE Festival this week!


We all want to live more inspired, meaningful lives, to look with new light, to cultivate our creativity. Igniting conversation and imagination, Inspire Festival is designed to evoke inspired thought and positive action in your own life, and in the lives of those around you.

Inspire TALK featuring Robin Bailey, Trent Dalton and Stan Grant with Kelly Higgins-Devine as host: In this age of social media, texting and tweets, is the art of the truly inspiring conversation being lost? Three conversational maestros who have established careers curating intimate portraits of the stories of others share their deep insights into the art of conversation and how it creates human connection.

Inspire DEMOCRACY featuring Mark Bahnisch, Dr Lorann Downer, Jan Owen AM & Eyal Halamish, with Erik Jensen as host: It’s an election year. Once again we will go to the polls and exercise our democratic right to choose who leads our country. What does democracy mean in modern Australia? Do we vote with our heads or our hearts? What do we need to consider when we head to the polls in 2016?

Inspire DRIVE featuring Tim Fairfax AC, Nic Marchesi & Lucas Patchett (Orange Sky Laundry), Catherine McGregor AM and Michael Ross: The speakers in this session were all awarded Australian / Queenslander of the Year in 2016. What drives them to follow their dreams, and what inspires them to give so openly to their area of focus? Presented by McCullough Robertson.
