The Reckoning

22 – 23 January 2026
2.00pm – 9.00pm AEDT

UNSW Sydney is the 2022 Education Partner of Sydney Festival! To celebrate this partnership, the UNSW Centre for Ideas presented a gutsy talk series that combines big conversations with a splash of comic relief to tackle the issues shaping our future. Stan Grant, Richard Holden, Emma Johnston, Benjamin Law, George Megalogenis, Rosalind Dixon and Laura Tingle are among those on the roll call to discuss pandemic politics, climate (in)action, Indigenous recognition and our changing national identity.
