The Festival provides a platform for courageous discussion and debate on ideas that stimulate, provoke and engage, with the aim of pricking listeners into a fresh consciousness about the world we inhabit.
What are dangerous ideas? They are ideas that challenge the status quo, that cause a frisson of tension when discussed openly, ideas that people think but think twice about giving expression to. A dangerous idea has the potential to change the way something is done or perceived. A dangerous idea can cause us to question the notion of free speech and tolerance, but challenging people to say what they think and think about what they say makes for a richer culture. A society that has the courage to examine itself will emerge stronger than before.
