Festival of Ambitious Ideas: Interesting People Doing Interesting Things

25 October 2018

Lighthouse's popular Festival of Ambitious Ideas is on again, celebrating Canberra’s innovators, game-changers and status quo challengers.

As we approach the end of 2018, we will be celebrating some of the individuals and organisations working on innovative projects from a range of different sectors - technology, social enterprises, young entrepreneurs, creative industries, government and academia.

The Festival of Ambitious Ideas follows the Ignite format where our speakers only have 5 minutes each to present their ideas and ‘ignite’ the audience. In a little over an hour, guests are treated to a range of different ideas and perspectives. The event is designed to be fast-paced, informal and fun.

If you're interested in innovation, big ideas and passionate people who are game to try new things and keen to share their experiences; then this is the event for you!
