Academics For Academic Freedom

At the Battle of Ideas festival everyone’s opinions and ideas are taken seriously. Everyone who comes wants to know what you think about every topic and will engage you in no holds barred discussion if they think you are wrong. Rigorous debate is the order of the two days under the banner ‘free speech allowed’ and the festival is a model of what intellectual life should be.
