Humans have evolved from the same stardust, amoebas, fungi and apes into complex cultural creatures, with the capacity to look telescopically back in time to the beginnings of our universe, to consciously ponder our purpose and predict various aspects of our future.
The cultural ecology of our urban habitats will define the future of our cities, in how we treat each other, our connection to place and our ways of being.
Join us in conversation to explore the ecosystem of elements that shape our urban cultural life.

Adelaide is built on an ancient place between pristine oceans and an ancient mountain belt. It is a unique geographical, ecological and cultural place, with strong First Nation's cultures, thriving arts and cultural festivals and great universities - all surrounded by parkland, pristine coastline and productive food and wine regions.
As part of Global Conscious Cities Festival, Conscious Adelaide will focus on bringing the voice of young people to conversations about the identity, mood, mindsets and meanings of the place, in a festival of questions and conversations about what it means ‘to be’ Adelaide, now and into the future.
