Young People's Festival of Ideas - The Power of Social Media

Wednesday 20 November 2013, 17:30 to 19:00

A new series of events looking at critical issues affecting young people today. This event will explore the topic of Social Media.

Has communicating via social media affected how we communicate in person? Does social media undermine and trivialise what makes us human? Can online freedom and security exist at the same time? As people's behaviour on platforms such as Twitter and Facebook makes the news headlines we must ask what real impact technology is having on us. Should we always protect anonymity at all costs? 

New confirmed panel member: Dave Schneider.
Best know for his work on TV shows such as I'm Alan Partridge and The Day Today, Dave Schneider is an actor, writer, director and internet obsessive, specialising in comedy. Dave is also the co-founder of TH@T LOT which advises companies and brands on their digital output. An avid Tweeter he has over 150,000 followers.

Inspired by Bristol Festival of Ideas, Young Arnolfini and Salaam Shalom Youth Council have teamed up to curate a unique platform allowing young people to share ideologies and philosophies with a panel of high profile speakers. More speakers for this event to be announced shortly.

The event is FREE but donations are welcome.

Bring along yourself, a mate, and your opinions.

Please call box office on 0117 9172300 to book
