A Festival for the Heart and Mind


10 – 12 September 2021

Aotea, Great Barrier Island

Small Island Big Ideas is Aotea’s festival for the heart and mind.

This year’s theme is Uncertainty.

Join us for talks, a panel discussion, workshops and field trips.

In a world gone viral, we’ll seek a unique island perspective on this essential ingredient for creativity, growth and adventure.  

Bring an open mind and be prepared to go home challenged and changed.

Many of the events are free of charge, however, registration is required as there are limited spaces. 

More events to be announced.

Thanks to our Supporters
