Battle of Ideas 2017Battle of Ideas

Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 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. It affords the opportunity for some clear thinking, rational debate and agenda-setting - above all, it's future-orientated, whilst retaining a healthy regard for the past achievements of humanity.

 

Inspired by the Institute of Ideas, the Manchester Salon is in association with Interact MCR who are producing a satellite event as part of this year's Battle of Ideas.

 

Hopefully see you at the Battle of Ideas, but if not then at these satellite discussions, helping to extend the weekend festival in both time and space. Buy tickets for 2017 at http://www.battleofideas.org.uk/2017/tickets.
