Have we lost the art of debate? As more and more public discourse moves to platforms that favour quick reactions, soundbite responses or black or white takes on complex topics that gather momentum at lightning speed, are we at risk of losing proper intellectual exchange and nuanced discussion? Festival Guest Curator Elif Shafak (How to Stay Sane in an Age of Division), LBC Presenter Iain Dale (Why Can’t We All Get Along?) and Ashley Dotty Charles (Outraged: Why Everyone is Shouting and No One is Talking) talk flash activism, cancel culture, free speech and how to take the heat out of our seemingly outraged age.
