Festival of Ambitious Ideas

The Art of the Ordinary


The Art of the Ordinary celebrates Canberra people, projects and businesses turning the ordinary into extraordinary. Whether it’s creating beautiful furniture from recycled timber, using science to improve soil management, ethical tourism through community partnerships, or a self-balancing mobility device; the Festival of Ambitious Ideas will showcase some of our local innovators and innovations transforming the everyday in artful and surprising ways.

The Festival of Ambitious Ideas follows the Ignite format where 12 speakers each have 5 minutes to tell their story and ‘ignite’ the audience. In a little over an hour, guests are treated to a range of different ideas and perspectives. Following the presentations there will be an opportunity for networking and the audience to speak to the various presenters.
