Festival of Dangerous Ideas
Saturday, March 17, 10-5pm
Rich Mix, London E1 6LA

The old ideas are bust. Now is the time for the new, the marginalised, the road less travelled… dangerous ideas for dangerous times. 

Join key activists, commentators and cultural figures reflecting on a world in disarray and turmoil.

Bringing the spirit of revolution to Londonare Egyptian MP Nasr-Eddin al-Zoghbi and activist Marwa Farouk of the Socialist Renewal Current, an activist group in Cairo. They will be joined by John Rees, co-author of The People Demand, to discuss how to finish a revolution, and activists from Greece describing what it means to be at the frontline of Europe’s austerity project. BBC Economics editor Paul Mason, and author and recent Question Time panellist Owen Jones join subversive authors and activists Nina Power and Sanum Ghafoor to discuss the radical ideas needed to confront the bleak landscape of austerity Britain. Paul Mason also joins Sanum Ghafoor and Lindsey German to discuss why it’s kicking off everywhere. Situationist adbuster Rob Montgomery, graffiti politician Stik and Palestinian poet Rafeef Ziadah will speak and perform. TV archaeologist Neil Faulkner will be presenting a brief history of the world. Sam Duckworth of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. runs a workshop on the perils of political songwriting. He will perform after Tony Benn and Roy Bailey do their sell out Writing on the Wall show and Mark McGowan brings us the latest thoughts of the Artist Taxi Driver. There will also be live performances from Pandit G of Asian Dub Foundation and Sam Duckworth of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. The Rich Mix bar and club will be serving until 1am.

Festival organiser Clare Solomon describes the day as a ‘’fun-packed and informative day using music, multimedia and a variety of interesting formats including a ‘tweet-out’, Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, lunchtime comedy from Josie Long, a guerrilla film workshop, an exclusive ‘free shop’, live graffiti walls and much more…”
