Vivid Sydney - Ideas After the Fact

Delve into daily current affairs with a drink in hand at Barangaroo House

React in real time, delve beyond click-bait headlines and understand the world better. Every weeknight of Vivid Sydney, kick back with a drink and watch as the brightest minds dissect and debate the breaking stories of the day.

This up-to-the-minute, nightly deep-dive into current affairs and the daily news cycle is moderated by the brilliant Tom Wright and features a rotating selection of high-profile change-makers, analysts and experts.

Engage with these writers, journalists, ex-politicians, social commentators, artists and academics as they debrief the day’s headlines and shine a light on the stories getting everyone talking. Each discussion will be followed by an interactive Q&A with the audience.

Free and open to enquiring minds of all ages, After The Fact runs between 6-7pm each weekday at Barangaroo House, the perfect way to finish the workday before you continue the debate throughout your Vivid Sydney evening.
