GAME CHANGERS AT SYDNEY TOWN HALL
In an exclusive live-streamed talk, self-proclaimed ‘feminist in progress’, actor and writer Jameela Jamil will talk about Body Politics with author and political commentator, Jamila Rizvi. Revealing how her podcast and platform I Weigh is a place for imperfection and self- acceptance, Jameela will speak out about the importance of a healthy self-image and the need for greater representation of diversity on stage and screens, while tackling the conforming nature of social media.

Magda Szubanksi and Julia Baird will share notes on the role of nature, creativity and community in building resilience and resistance. Together, they will discuss the importance of taking a stand for what you believe in, how to draw on inner reserves of strength, why laughter really is the best medicine and the joy of self-acceptance.

While musicians, cooks and all-round agitators, Briggs and Nat’s What I Reckon will riff on music, mental health and mayhem, moderated by Nakkiah Lui, a proud Gamillaroi and Torres Strait Islander woman, writer, actor and director. This unlikely pair will give each other advice on how to navigate their respective industries, revealing what they have listened to and eaten along the way.

NEW HORIZONS PROGRAM
Delving into micro movements and mega trends, the New Horizons Program taps into the forces shaping our society. Experts in psychology, science and creativity unpack everything from the Future of Drugs, Men and Mental Health, Grief and the appeal of Sects and Cults across two venues – the Vivid Ideas Exchange at University of Technology, Sydney and in a unique festival first, NSW Parliament House.

Parliament House provides the backdrop for a behind-the-scenes look into investigative journalism with the ABC’s Caro Meldrum-Hanna and Dr Simon Longstaff AO from The Ethics Centre in Whistleblowers. The venue also hosts Walkley Award-winning cartoonist, First Dog on the Moon presenting life’s foibles and eccentricities through I Told You So, and film director Catherine Dwyer with a special screening of Brazen Hussies followed by a Q&A with distinguished panellists Elizabeth Reid AO (the world’s first advisor on women’s affairs to a head of government) and Professor Michelle Arrow.
