At a series of live events in Manchester, we’re bringing together speechwriters, activists, academics, politicians and the voices of our nation to explore speech-making’s ability to provoke, persuade and empower.
On Tue 21 Nov, join us for a conversation about the ingredients of a great speech, with classicist and cultural historian Edith Hall, and former speechwriter to David Cameron, Jessica Cunniffe. Plus academic Henriette van der Blom and Artistic Director of Dash Arts, Josephine Burton.
On Wed 22 Nov, we’ll explore activism and how we speak out, with artist and stand-up comedian Rinkoo Barpaga, alongside journalist and academic Alan Finalyson and Josephine Burton. This event will be BSL interpreted by Winston Denerley and Samantha Vanterpool.
