To kick off 2018 our theme for the first Festival of Ambitious Ideas for the year was ‘Home Grown’ and showcased a range of organisations and projects that have built on the uniqueness of Canberra - its landscape, people, industries and personality to create innovative businesses, events and programs. Our twelve speakers talked about their inspirations; challenges they have faced along the way and future opportunities they see for Canberra.

Festival of Ambitious Ideas is proudly sponsored by the Canberra Airport.
