The global pandemic has got us thinking about the future.

Join us in this new fortnightly series where we explore the cracks in our systems and how we can all make positive changes in the way we live, learn and play.

Each episode, creative thinkers will join award-winning journalist Santilla Chingaipe to discuss their brave and bold future state ideas, ranging from television to politics.

The series will be streamed live on State Library Victoria’s website and made available after each event as a video and podcast.

Thursday 29 October: The future of citizenship
