Battle of Ideas

Industry: Travel
International thinkers gather for two-days of cultural debate, reports
October 16, 2013, 7:37 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Sharpen your mind, dust off your rhetoric, mug up on world affairs… this weekend (19-20 October) London's Barbican Centre hosts the annual Battle of Ideas, two days of public debate with a roster of smooth talkers and smart thinkers.

Organised by the Institute of Ideas , a group committed to the promotion of intelligent public discussion, the weekend features some 350 speakers drawn from the highest echelons of arts, academia, business, law, health, science, media around the world. Among them filmmaker Beeban Kidron, architect Farshid Moussavi, music journalist Paul Morley and co-founder of the Local Schools Network, Fiona Millar.

Although the weekend is broad-ranging, themes for this year include the private and the public, the battle over music and generation wars. More than 80 sessions will be taking place throughout the two packed days in venues around the Barbican complex. This means you could be discussing the future of ebooks one minute and global economics the next. Or how about, ‘Is the market private or public?' ‘Legal highs and club drug culture.' ‘Graphic novels: literature for the 21st century?' ‘Honey, did we bankrupt the kids?'

Other events over the weekend include drinks, a fanfare from the Royal Philharmonic society, and an architectural tour of the Barbican.

The full weekend costs £100 (£55 concessions), and day passes £60 (£35 concessions). Talks and events start at 10am on the Saturday, 9.30 pm the Sunday and go on till 9pm.
