Festival of Ambitious Ideas celebrates Canberra’s innovators, game-changers and status quo challengers. As we approached the end of 2017, we celebrated some of the individuals and organisations working on innovative projects from a range of different sectors - technology, social enterprises, young entrepreneurs, creative industries, government and academia.
