Spring is a one-day conference to be held in the Friends Meeting House, central Manchester on the 11th May.
“We hope to offer some honest, inspiring and potentially awkward debate on the state of the radical left and of leftist, emancipatory politics generally. Authors, activists and thinkers from a variety of backgrounds and interests of which we see rarely reflected in the dryness and banality of debate in the radical left.”
I will be on the panel from 11.15am-12.15pm for:
What is radical art? The search for universal truths, the left and contemporary culture.
