Arnolfini, Salaam Shalom Youth Council, Rising Arts Agency and Festival of Ideas bring you a host of hard hitting free talks and debates on issues that matter to you.
Young People’s Festival of Ideas began as a series of events in 2014 looking at critical issues that affect young people today. Topics included Pornography and the Public, the Power of Social Media and Class and Education. Panel discussions were led by invited experts talking alongside young people from Salaam Shalom Youth Council and Young Arnolfini, who collectively teamed up to curate a unique platform allowing young people to share ideologies and philosophies with a panel of high profile speakers. All three events sold out.
“I feel the Young People’s Festival of Ideas events have really fulfilled our aim – to give young people a unique platform to share ideologies and philosophies, particularly amongst themselves as well as other generations. Not only has it been cathartic for me but I feel it has also been great for representing the diverse intellect of young people.” Emma Blake-Morsi, Young Arnolfini
