Battle of Ideas 2016Battle of Ideas

Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 October

The Battle of Ideas festival, currently being held at the Barbican in London, was initiated by the Institute of Ideas 12 years ago to encourage free thinking and open-ended public discussion, and is supported by a wide range of partners. The Battle of Ideas festival comprises 400 speakers at 75 debates and satellite discussions confronting society’s big issues and unresolved questions.
