Discussing politics isn’t something typically associated with a good time, though a group of activists called ‘Mutiny’ are trying to change that.
The members of Mutiny have a mission to change the world, and they’re taking initiative toward doing this by combining activist debate with a casual night out–creating a social experience that blends the issues with more cerebral activities, inside a ‘pub table setting.’
Many of Mutiny’s events are art-centered: viewing films or attending poetry readings, performances or art exhibits. Most importantly, no matter where the group goes, they try to harbor a safe space for discussion, critical theory and alternative media, providing an innovative shaping of political discourse in a contemporary world.
Every event held by Mutiny begins with speed debating and unfolds into three parts: people’s lived experience, an analysis and ideas for solutions.
On Thursday, 4 November 2010, Mutiny will be holding ‘Education on Trial,’ an event focused on discussing the future of education. The event will be held as a result of the spending cuts listed in the United Kingdom Comprehensive Spending Review and will take place at The Venue, University of London, from 6:30 pm to 11:30 pm.
Tickets are £5/3 and are available online at PayPal at http://lovemutinytickets.blogspot.com/2010/10/education-on-trial-tickets.html. Booking ahead of time is recommended.
