Birmingham Literature Festival: How Should Britain Be Run? FREE
Is our country going in the right direction? Do we make the best decisions? Is democracy broken?
The way we allow politicians to make important decisions is being questioned from all sides. The aim of this event, run by Talk Shop with the support of the Royal Society for the Arts (RSA), is to see whether together we can reach some measure of agreement about how well the country is run, and what can be done to improve things.
Instead of the traditional for and against debate, that often leaves everyone angry and frustrated, Talk Shop puts the emphasis on understanding each other’s opinions and finding common ground: a tall order in two hours, but we promise you won’t be bored.
