How will we live in the future? inSight dives into this big, audacious question across the weekend of 2nd and 3rd September.

How will our town shape us – and how can we shape our town? Is it a question of reinvent or die for our tourist resort home? How will technology impact on our towns, education, health? Experts discuss the issues – and answer our burning questions – so we can better understand the options ahead of us.

inSight runs Saturday and Sunday at Queenstown Memorial Centre. Doors open at 10am, and inSight runs continuously throughout the weekend, with:
- keynote speakers by leading experts
- TEDish talks from Wakatipu High School students exploring future issues
- performances from the WHS Science Buskers Academy
- projects and tabletop science demonstrations from local students, looking at our future through their eyes
- Sci Short Films from The Centre for Science Communications – crazy critters, troubled ecosystems and compelling human stories
- Future Towns displays
- coffee cart in the foyer.

Presented by Catalyst Trust and supported by Beca, The Brain Health Research Centre, Bridget Williams Books, The Centre for Science Communication, Fluid, QLDC, The Rees Hotel Queenstown, University of Otago, and Visual Events.
