The Institute of Interesting Ideas is founded on the principle that life is for learning, and that we are all simultaneously teachers and students. I3 is committed to sparking provocative and stimulating conversations by presenting the most interesting speakers Australia has to offer.

From entertainers & journalists, scientists & master chefs, authors & musicians and beyond…I3 will challenge, provoke, inspire and dare our audience to see the world differently. The line-up of speakers come from all walks of life and take to our stage to share their stories, wisdom and ideas with honesty & humour.

The Institute of Interesting Ideas (I3) has partnered with the Pavilion, Kiama, who’s oceanfront venue offers the perfect setting for a special evening of dialogue, exchange and inspiration.
