Festival of Ideas: The Pursuit of Identity, June 13-18, The University of Melbourne

The search for an Australian identity in thought, literature, history, art and architecture, politics, foreign policy and education has been a positive element in Australian culture. The Festival will review how much the distinctive landscapes of Australia have shaped national identity, both in its bio-diversity and the brilliant way it has been imagined and depicted by artists from the ancient art of aboriginal culture to the present day.
