Our Initiatives Preview v2


Climate change. Inequality. Racism. The patriarchy.
Don’t panic, let’s talk. This is comedy done different.

Dialogue, the Festival’s storytelling show, walks the tightrope between hilarious and heart-wrenching. Talking about the topics that matter most, Dialogue’s superb line up of comedians and personalities will make you laugh, move you and empower you to make change.

Hosted by Kura Forrester in 2020.
