It is Disrupted 2020 - A Better World
Why the State Library?
Our mission is so much more than just books. The State Library is about collecting, preserving and sharing our State’s stories and treasures.
We are also about ideas and debate, which is why we run Disrupted and regularly host great talks.
This Festival, like everything else we provide is Free.

Why ‘A Better World’?
The COVID 19 Pandemic and the explosion of the Black Lives Matter movement have been the catalyst for optimism that real and positive change is a possibility. This may be our chance to help create a ‘Better World’. Disrupted speakers and panels will explore what a better world might look like through their eyes.
