Join us for seven days of exciting talks, debates and art focused squarely on the new, challenging and dangerous political trends facing all democracies today.

The Festival will tackle pressing democratic questions including why race is still an easily ignitable issue, how to understand the global rise of populism and ‘where to now’ for our democracies in the context of global economic and political developments.
