Small Island Big Ideas is Aotea’s festival for the heart and mind.

Our intention is to arouse curiosity and conversation that takes our world and communities forward.

This year’s theme is The Winter of our Discontent.

In a world gone viral and at the brink of war, we’ll distill a unique island perspective on what these global disruptions might mean for the future of individuals and communities.

We will explore current realities of living with uncertainty through the topics of money, psychology, writing and science.

Bring an open mind and be prepared to go home refreshed.

‘The Winter of our Discontent’ Sunday fireside talks will be held at the Currach May to September, hosting a variety of guest speakers.
