Sydney | Nathan Spataro | The Future of Democracy

  • Golden Age Cinema 80 Commonwealth Street Surry Hills, NSW, 2010 Australia (map)

What do blockchain, human creativity and politics have in common?

Meet Nathan Spataro. He’s our October speaker exploring the future of democracy from a very different lens.

Join us as he talks about the hyper-polarisation of politics being experienced by many liberal democracies around the world in the 21st century, its consequences, and possible solutions."

About Rising Minds:

Rising Minds explores the intersection of technology, business and culture through a free monthly speaker series hosted at intimate venues in Sydney, London and New York.

But more than that, Rising Minds is about true connection - and connecting in a time when this seems more important and more challenging than ever.

For 60 minutes of unplugged sharing, we invite you to expand your thinking - in the company of curious minds and fuelled by great coffee. Rising Minds is a space where speakers share a little more of themselves, where guests ask exciting and vulnerable questions where connections are made beyond the room — but there too.

Whether you’re a regular or a newbie, extroverted or introverted, a CEO or a student - We invite you to pop in, enjoy a great coffee and connect with other curious thinkers. We're excited to rise with you.
