Festival(s) of Ideas

Kristin: Adelaide has a long-standing record of festivals and ideas. We are preparing to be immersed and overwhelmed across the next couple of weeks (ok, months) with a myriad of activities in the Festival of Ideas (#afoi), the Festival of Unpopular Culture (#FUCAdl) and more.

Here’s a list of what I’ll be doing, so if you’re local hopefully we can meet up. And if you’re not I’ll be tweeting, and some of these events will be livestreamed. So here it is:
