Disrupted Festival of Ideas is a weekend of FREE EVENTS including: conversations, panel discussions, keynotes and activities taking over the State Library of Western Australia.

Presented by the State Library of Western Australia., Disrupted will again challenge and inspire our way of thinking, with 2018 shining the spotlight on technology and its impact on humanity.

This year’s line-up of remarkable keynote speakers, artists, anthropologists, writers, journalists and scientists will navigate, the issues and complexities of this developing 21st century, and the times we are living in.

The State Library has always been an important creative hub for people to meet, learn and engage with new ideas and technology. Disrupted builds on this foundation to create a transformative weekend of research, discovery, imagination and curiosity across a range of experiences and platforms.

As part of this year’s festival, Perth musician Leafy Suburbs (Lyndon Blue) will be the music disruptor in the Discovery Lounge for the duration of the festival. Known for delivering electronic, found and damaged sounds swimming together in pools of light and mud, Leafy Suburbs takes full advantage of today’s music tech. His free improvisation and field recordings mingle with ambient textures, fractured beats, haunting drones and oblique melodies to deliver something completely unique.
