Freedom Talks 

Continuing the conversation all year long

Freedom Talks have been an integral part of the festival programme since 2017. 

This year we've continued the conversation beyond Freedom Festival, as we marked the anniversary of the Modern Slavery Act with a special Freedom Talk with award-winning Guardian journalist Annie Kelly.

In partnership with Hull University and the Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery and Emancipation (WISE) the event saw Annie, editor of the Guardian’s Modern-day slavery in focus series, return to the city following her successful Freedom Talk as part of last year’s Freedom Festival.
