    An Evening with Alison Roman

    An Evening with Alison Roman

    Capturing global attention through recipes so popular they became viral hashtags (#TheCookies, #ThePasta, #TheDip), Alison Roman wowed Sydney audiences in May 2023 in her quest for us all to ditch “domestic goddess” perfection and embrace a no-fuss, no-nonsense approach to cooking at home.
    Roman spoke to fellow cook and Australian television presenter Adam Liaw about all the things that took her from early life as a pastry chef in California to the stage of the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall.

    AI: The Human Interface

    AI: The Human Interface

    In a year when everyone is talking about artificial intelligence, we need to talk about the human kind. What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to be conscious of your existence, your thoughts, your dreams? As machines develop, what might be left that is uniquely human? Our pursuit of pleasure and its rewards? Our ability to love? 
     
    AI expert Toby Walsh and evolutionary biologist Rob Brooks join journalist Rae Johnston to tackle the fundamental questions we should be asking amid the advent of super intelligent machines.
     
    This is the second episode of a five-part season which showcases recent events from the Sydney Opera House, and was recorded live in October 2023.

    Maybe Baby | All About Women 2023

    Maybe Baby | All About Women 2023

    Unsure about parenthood? You're not alone.
    There's a lot to consider when it comes to reproductive choice, evolving social norms mean that women don't have to follow a one-way path to motherhood. Either flying solo or coupled, hetero or queer, when it comes to taking control of fertility there's IVF, egg freezing, and more. And the decision to have children only leads to more questions - about careers, relationships, AND the state of the world.
    At All About Women 2023, our panellists share their research and lived experiences about biological clocks, and the latest in fertility science. Journalists Brooke Boney, Gina Rushton, and Dr Natasha Andreadis explore the minefield of baby-making in the modern world with host Sana Qadar.
    This event was recorded live at the Sydney Opera House in March 2023.

    Spinster | All About Women 2023

    Spinster | All About Women 2023

    Independent single women are a threat to the status quo. So, it comes as no surprise that the demonisation of single women is not new. From the European witch trials to the formation of the western legal system and its impact on survivors today, the patriarchy has gone to diabolical lengths in order to keep women under its watch.
    In this invigorating All About Women 2023 session, Clementine Ford’s eye-opening and hilarious walk through history explored why unmarried spinsters strike fear in the heart of powerful men. 
    This event was recorded live at the Sydney Opera House in March 2023.
