A live debate, running alongside a major exhibition at IWM London, People Power: Fighting for Peace.
What is the future of protest in the UK and globally? Join comedian and political satirist Mark Thomas, Jim Waterson (Political Editor, Buzzfeed) and leading peace protesters including Kate Hudson (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament) and former SAS soldier Ben Griffin (Veterans for Peace UK) as they discuss key issues, from the historical roots of protest to the role of social media in modern movements. This interactive debate will also explore current protest and peace movements to try to answer where the future of protest is marching.
The ticket price includes entry to People Power: Fighting for Peace, the UK’s first major exhibition to explore the evolution of the anti-war protest movement from the First World War to the present day. A unique combination of more than three hundred items takes visitors on a journey from the First World War to the present day, looking at how peace activists have influenced perceptions of war and conflict.
This event has been produced with the IWM Youth Advisers.
