The safety of our attendees, speakers and staff is our chief priority. For this reason, our Kerry Packer Civic Gallery is closed until the end of the year, re-opening 6 January 2021. 

You can continue to engage with our innovative and thoughtful online events, including recent In-Conversations with Ronni Kahn and Craig Reucassel and The Truth of the Palace LettersYou can also access recent events - see our Relive our Events page for details. 

We will resume our live program of thoughtful events with some of the world’s most creative and innovative minds when it is safe to do so.

We appreciate your understanding and patience in these ongoing challenging times. 

Please take care,
