Notre Dame Launches QndA on Wednesday 19 August

31 July 2015

QndA draws pollies, priests and professors - of different faiths and traditions - to Notre Dame to thrash out (what should be) the hot issues of the day. It's about faith and reason in action.

QndA lets the audience ask the questions: on anything, from anyone.

Going beyond the sound-bite and the narrowly political, QndA brings together people of depth to discuss issues of depth. It's open, passionate and respectful.

Join the live event in person with our moderator, Hayden Ramsay, and follow the Twitter conversation on the night at #qnda.

QndA launches on Wednesday 19 August, with an all-star cast:

  • Most Rev. Anthony Fisher OP, Catholic Archbishop of Sydney
  • Dr Ryan T. Anderson, William E. Simon Senior Research Fellow in American Principles and Public Policy at The Heritage Foundation in Washington DC, USA

  • Mr Lyle Shelton, Managing Director of the Australian Christian Lobby
