The Festival of Open Minds – challenging bias, fostering conversation, building understanding

The Festival of Open Minds has been inspired by a regional community that values shared conversation, personal reflection, the wisdom of experience, and FUN!

A dynamic program of speakers has been assembled for September 1 at the Bega Civic Centre, a TEDx style event that will have people talking.

The broad festival theme is ‘change’.

The Festival of Open Minds pulls together national and local ideas with the aim of strengthening regional communities and providing an opportunity normally only available via a tollway or airport check-in lounge.

The stunning natural landscape of the Bega Valley naturally relaxes and open minds, the people who will gather to witness and take part in this event adds to the promise and power of the day.

Door sales start from 8:30 am, the speaker’s program starts at 9:30 am sharp – we have no time to lose!

Adults – $30, high schoolers (12-19 years) are FREE.
