Festival strand: Therapy Culture

It seems as if we have turning into society of navel-gazers who are too vulnerable to cope with the trials and tribulations of life. Studying at university, raising children, falling in love, even simply being a boy are all regarded as troublesome today. This strand offers the chance to take a step back from these individual issues to examine how they fit into wider changes in society today.

From betting to minimum pricing: saving the poor from themselves?

"Five debates a day sounds a bit daunting beforehand, but I really loved it. The speakers are so knowledgeable and passionate about their chosen topic, and the amount of time dedicated to questions from the audience was great as it really brought in alternative views."
