The Hon Linda Dessau AM, Governor of Victoria, delivers the first 2016 Big Ideas under the Dome lecture on the topic 'Sport and the arts: from Ablett (Jnr) to Caravaggio'.

'It’s a paradox that when we live in a state that loves both sport and the arts, so many people seem to show discomfort in saying that they love them both. There is frequently an abyss of misunderstanding between two distinct camps: those who are devoted to sport, and those who love the arts. The real argument should be about why sport really matters and why the arts really matter and why both really matter.'

– The Hon Linda Dessau AM
