Truth or Fiction: Digital Weekender Launch event

February 9 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

£10

Join us for an evening to launch our second Digital Weekender with talks exploring the fine line between fact and fiction and just how far you can push the bounds of reality in a time of Trump and fake news, compered by none other than comedian Jo Neary!

Journalist Ginny Dougary will reveal fact and fiction behind her award-winning career writing headline-grabbing interviews with people like Madonna, Donald Trump and the BBC’s national treasure, Clare Balding. Read more

A talk from artist Shardcore entitled “The Truth, Post-Truth, and nothing like The Truth”

How does social media mess with our relationship to reality?
What the hell happened to the truth?
Can you manufacture authenticity?
Should I be scared of the bots?
Can a machine make a joke?
Will Twitter destroy the world?

Artist Eric Drass (aka shardcore) may or may not answer these questions.

And special live DJ set from author Tim Maughan.

Drinks bar (cash or card)

Tickets £10 from Ticketsource or £12 cash on the door (limited number)
