Tickets From $49
2019 marks 11 years of sharp, honest, fair and feisty Intelligence Squared Debates in Australia. To celebrate, we’re bringing you a whole new range of topics as compelling as they are polarising. In these highly participatory debates, once both sides have had their say, the decision as to who emerges victor lies entirely in your hands.

In these politically divided times, there's a growing tendency to turn to sources that simply reflect our own world views. Public discussions about our thorniest global and local issues often descend into name-calling and personal attacks, leaving us more divided than ever.

To us, the refusal to engage with different or opposing perspectives is far too dangerous an idea.

That's why we're proud to be bringing you another exciting season of IQ2 Debates in 2019.

Join us, along with some of Australia's brightest minds from all walks of life and sides of the spectrum, as we come together to keep respectful conversation and debate alive and kicking in 2019.

For a limited time, save big with an IQ2 subscription package to all four debates – starting at just $49 +BF .

Your booking will deliver one ticket for the full IQ2 2019 season.

2019 debates:

26 March | Curb Immigraton
12 June | Ageism
27 August | Masculinity 
23 October | Democracy

Your tickets for each individual debate will be sent out via Eventbrite by Tuesday 19 March 2019.

Why not give the gift of Intelligent Debate to a friend or loved one and help us raise the level of debate in 2019?

Gift certificates available by emailing us directly.

Details and full speaker lineups for each debate will be announced in advance of each debate. We can guarantee four compelling and entertaining nights with some of the sharpest, wittiest and best informed observers in Australia.
