The Free Thinking Festival

A taste of our program


Join talks, listen in and engage with leading minds to help us achieve that ultimate goal…


Participate, learn and play to awake your inner student.

Art, film, music & more

Sit back and enjoy or jump in and dance.


Commit to a better world.


At the end of the BedTalk, we invite the speakers to commit to something, anything that will help: a contact, advice, or how about they kick off a new project together? We reward the best commitments with a 365 Award, the commitment accelerator for the most ground-breaking ideas.
