We don’t shy away from the big questions at WOMADelaide and one of the biggest facing humanity today is: How do we create a sustainable relationship with the planet? Over three afternoons, we will once again host some of the world’s leading thinkers, activists, and scientists in engaging and inspiring conversations, that in 2019 will be held in the brand new, spacious, Frome Park Pavilion!
