Embrace wisdom of the ages

TASMANIA needs to shake off the idea that an ageing population is a problem, says the curator of the Disruptive Festival of Ideas.

The four-day event -- part of the Festival of Voices -- finished yesterday with an "unconference" that gave the audience a chance to talk about what they want to happen in the state.

"We have the largest concentration of wisdom in Australia," curator Bill Aronson, of the Scala Institute, said. "Yes, there are some practical issues that we have to take care of around health, but we're talking about how we can take that wisdom of thousands and thousands of years and use it as a resource."

Encouraging Tasmanians to speak up and get involved in discussions about how we can, and should, shape our state for the future, the new festival has been packed full with a host of engaging and provocative speakers leading the discussions.

Mr Aronson said the Festival of Ideas had exceeded his wildest expectations and plans were already progressing well for the future.

The four-day event will be followed by a 12-month program to bring people together to find solutions and outcomes for the state.

"The Step Up program will be about what we want the future of Tasmania to be and what are the practical steps we're going to have to take to get there," Mr Aronson said.

"We're putting together a group of 500 people who will be a powerhouse of creativity. Imagine you're an organisation with a challenge and you want to rethink something and don't know how to do it, you'll be able to throw that into this group and get 500 different opinions and ideas."
