AFoI Opening Night Oration: 'What a magician taught me about politics'. How political debate, from the local to the global, is confused and controlled by conjuring.
Phillip Adams AO

Join us for the Opening Night of the 2016 Adelaide Festival of Ideas (AFoI) when we celebrate one of our National Living Treasures, Phillip Adams. Companion to Late Night Live listeners and a much loved cultural icon, this year's AFoI is dedicated to Adams in recognition of his multifaceted contribution to Australia's intellectual life. The evening will also feature the dedication to Adams delivered by another leading light of the Australian cultural, political and academic landscape, the inimitable Barry Jones AC, who will then turn the spotlight on Adams in conversation.

Erin Brockovich in conversation with Phillip Adams
Presented by AFoI as part of Open State

Home
Artists Ali Alizadeh, Nick Drake, Ali Cobby Eckermann, Mike Mills, Karl Winda Telfer, Manal Younus

For some it is physical shelter, a milestone, an asset, a source of comfort, identity and belonging. For others the scene of a crime, of nightmares and a point of no return. In changing times, when people are on the move, displaced and disenfranchised, how can we make ourselves at home? If home is where the heart is, perhaps we should ask the poets, the travellers, the story tellers to examine what home means to them and perhaps understand what it means for us all.

Elder Hall, The University of Adelaide, North Terrace

Flinders Investigator Lecture
Jeffrey Bleich Democracy's New Challenge -- Runaway Technology and Walk-Away Government

Technology is advancing at an unprecedented rate, with the great opportunities and challenges this entails. However, democracies, designed for predictable and deliberate change, are overwhelmed by this rate of change, producing a public backlash in elections around the world.
Reframing public debate around technology and government is critical to restoring healthy democracy, and developing nimble and effective modern government.
