The Limits of Freedom

This event has already taken place.

Host: HowTheLightGetsIn
Location: Hay-on-Wye
Speaker: Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Dennis Marks, Padraig Reidy, Henrietta Moore

From TV to Twitter, comedy and the arts are often used to question, challenge and provoke. But should there be limits? In a connected globalised world do we need to take more heed of sensitivities, or is laughter and entertainment the best cure and taking offence an inappropriate response?

Independent columnist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Index on Censorship's Padraig Reidy and filmmaker and former director of the ENO Dennis Marks debate the limits of free speech.

HowTheLightGetsIn is a festival of music and philosophy at Hay.
