Live Panel Discussion: Can Anyone Be An Activist?

Wednesday 20 November
Panel & Talks 5-7 Foubert's Pl, Soho, London W1F 7PY 7:00PM - 9:15PM £6

The Can We Just Ask Panel will be discussing whether anyone can be an activist. Hosts, Annie Clarke and Will Clempner will be joined by other soon to be announced guests to explore questions like: Is activism inherently inaccessible beyond a certain sector of society? Are organisations like Extinction Rebellion too un-relatable to ever make a big enough impact beyond their supporters?

What will be discussed?

The conversation will ask questions about activism, its downfalls and its successes. The following topics will be covered:

  • Is activism inherently inaccessible beyond a certain sector of society? 
  • Are organisations like Extinction Rebellion too un-relatable to ever make a big enough impact beyond their supporters? 
  • How does community activism help to project the voice of society and how can everyone get involved? 
  • Does community activism need to adapt to the digital world, or is it already one-step ahead? 
  • What's next for community activism, and how can we raise the voice of the smaller organisations who are already making a big impact?

How will you take part?

As always, the panel will be audience-led. Everyone in the room is encouraged to:

  • Participate in the conversation
  • Make statements
  • Ask questions 
  • Share their thoughts 

There is no such thing as a stupid question!
