A Meeting Place for Ideas

Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House is regularly transformed into a public forum for some of the most fascinating, disruptive and provocative conversations cropping up around the world.

Throughout the year, the Sydney Opera House’s Talks & Ideas program hosts a diverse range of extraordinary speakers and thinkers, provocateurs and wits, conversations and debates, including the annual Festival of Dangerous Ideas, For Thought and All About Women series.

Economist Joseph Stiglitz (pictured), author and activist Naomi Klein, theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, former Prime Minister Paul Keating, author and philosopher Alain de Botton, Russian punk protest collective Pussy Riot, cognitive scientist Steven Pinker, journalist and filmmaker Jon Ronson, humorist and memoirist David Sedaris, actor and comedian Jennifer Saunders, economist Paul Krugman and celebrity chef Nigella Lawson are a few of the speakers gathered in this exhibit.
