Let’s Talk about Freedom
Tent Talks and live events programme in partnership with The Guardian Live.
Presented in partnership with University of Hull and Hull 201
“Hull – A city with freedom in its bones, but are we free? What does that really mean today?
Working in partnership with University of Hull we have developed a program of talks, debates, exhibitions and live events which weave through the festival and open up a wider discussion about Freedom.
Together as a city, let’s explore these themes of freedom, let’s listen to artists, academics, activists and most importantly let’s listen to each other.”
