The Brisbane Dialogues is a wholly independent, non-partisan, pro bono project to stimulate and civilise public discourse about big issues.

The Brisbane Dialogues is excited and privileged to have democratic socialist economics professor John Quiggin of the University of Queensland and visiting Canadian-American libertarian philosophy professor Stephen Hicks debate to launch The Brisbane Dialogues. 

Don't miss out on this seminal event!  Book tickets here.


Humanity must evolve from polarisation and intolerance toward civil discourse, if we are to generate solutions.  Let's have a go.

Brisbane has a role to play in the great discussions going on across the world about the future.  Let's join in.
