NextFest is a series of public events hosted by La Trobe University’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences that engages with the key challenges and possibilities of our immediate future.

In a variety of formats ranging from debates, panel discussions, a film screening, a spoken word slam, and a live pop-up Encyclopedia of the Future, NextFest harnesses the creativity and intellectual energy of leading thinkers at La Trobe and beyond to help make sense of what lies ahead and how and where we might make a difference in shaping our own futures.

The 2019 event has been postponed, but will return in 2020.
