‘To do a great right, do a little wrong.’
The Merchant of Venice, Act IV, Scene 1

Synopsis


Leading cultural figures question if we are self-censors in today’s artistic landscape.

Background


50 years on do we need a new Theatres Act? Are artists and cultural institutions entering a new era of self-censorship and if so what does the future look like? Join leading cultural and political figures in a panel discussion that explores the complexities of modern day censorship and its impact on arts and culture.

This event is in collaboration with the Index on Censorship.

There will also be the opportunity to put your questions to the panel on the night #JoinTheDebate
