Tim Flannery & Robyn Williams:

Two legendary science communicators in conversation about how to change minds in a world of denialism, disinformation, and deep fakes.

Professor Tim Flannery FAA is an internationally acclaimed scientist and one of Australia’s leading writers on climate change, and was named Australian of the Year in 2007. Professor Robyn Williams AO FAA is one of Australia’s best known science journalists and broadcasters, and has hosted “The Science Show” on ABC Radio National for almost half a century.

Immediately following this performance, the audience and speakers will be invited across the street to Beaker Street’s Festival Hub at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, featuring delicious food and drink, live music, science/art exhibitions, 150+ scientists to chat with, and more!
