Looming global threats to democracy dominated this year’s Antidote — a festival of ideas, action and change at the Sydney Opera House.
Audiences heard from thought leaders and provocateurs from around the world about the big challenges facing our world — from climate change to rising nationalism to big data.
For the first time, the festival was co-hosted by the new Judith Neilson Institute for Journalism and Ideas. The Institute’s support helped the festival bring some of the biggest names in global journalism to discuss the challenges of reporting in an increasingly volatile environment.
