The Future of Democracy Hub Day – The Festival of Debate
May 21 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
In partnership with The Convention
Join us in Sheffield Town Hall as we make space to get inspired and create the future we want for democracy. Co-curated by author and activist Jon Alexander and the Festival of Debate.
Focusing on what could be in the future, not just what’s wrong now, we’ll get inspiration from experts and experimenters from the other side of the world, and from right here in Sheffield. Democracy might be in crisis, but it’s also true that a whole new idea of democracy is taking shape – and Sheffield could be at the heart of it.
Featuring Ece Temelkuran, Shami Chakrabarti, Jackie Weaver, Olivia Blake MP, Camilla Vergara, Indy Johar (Dark Matter Labs), Jessie Joe Jacobs (Involve), Simon Duffy (Citizen Network), Maff Potts (Camerados), Barnaby Flynn & many more.
