Arts & Business

The Battle of Ideas is an opportunity to think the unthinkable, say the unsayable and debate vigorously with a bunch of forthright and passionate people. It’s great fun, stimulating and inspiring and we are delighted that this will be the 4th year that Arts & Business have played a role. The Battle of Ideas has always been committed to the arts and this year is no exception. We are proud to support and sponsor this strand.

"The audience were the stars of the Battle of Ideas - engaged, informed and enthusiastic. As a panellist, I felt both ashamed and educated. Exactly as it should be."
