Night Nomads. 
The Night Nomads exist to facilitate bold, daring and sometimes uncomfortable conversations around the way in which digital technology is changing our lives... for better or for worse.

Run over three consecutive Tuesday evenings, the events feature outstanding digital legends who have a free license to engage, provoke and challenge us to think differently about our digital futures.
2020 theme. The internet and its humanity.
‘When you grow up you have to accept responsibility’ says the father of the internet, Tim Berners-Lee.

As a fully fledged 30 year old, the internet has grown bigger and faster, however it hasn’t matured or evolved as much as its years would indicate.

In one corner we often hear about how the internet is broken, with challenges around privacy breaches, data exploitation, threats to democracy & bad actors. On the other hand, we are hopeful about the possibilities which lie before us - the internet of everything, collaboration and community, increased affordability & availability of technology ... likely a digital future we yet unable to comprehend.

The internet is a reflection of our humanity. It magnifies our ability to do good, to build communities, to create, to save lives; along with our dark side, the hate, fear, anger & frustrations of being human.

The 2020 Night Nomad Series celebrated the internet whilst exploring the relationship between our real selves and our online personas. We examined the good, the bad and the ugly that has inadvertently altered the course of humanity.

Or perhaps it is and we need to learn how to distinguish what is true and what is not.

Over the past 50 years the internet has impacted every single aspect of our lives, from the mundane to the significant.

Imagine the revolution that will take place over the next 50 years. What the world will look like in 2070. What the internet will enable us to create…

Night nomads cover interesting topics and have a great range of knowledgeable panelists. The interaction between the audience and the panel is fantastic.
