Radical Vision is informed by a desire to find the temerity to change the things we cannot accept. How do we not simply protect democracy, but make it stronger? What are new (radical) ways forward—ways that go to the roots of our current democratic crisis? The festival will present five days of activity around the idea of an open society, to imagine its future and understand its past. Through public forums, performances, readings and workshops, we will conduct a forward-looking, critical appraisal of key democratic institutions including the press, technology corporations, criminal justice, electoral process.
Live Ideas is an annual humanities festival of arts and ideas, exploring the ideas, controversies and thinking informing a different bodily-oriented theme each time out.
