  • Inequality and Insurrection
  • Danny Dorling
  • Insurrection is an uprising. Analysts and commentators on inequality have long warned that if inequality is allowed to rise too high there will be insurrection. Thomas Piketty suggested this is why elites should concern themselves with inequality. Politicians often confuse sounding as if they care about inequality with actually caring. This talk provides some illustrations of how things fall apart as inequality rises, when it is high and when it is tolerated.

  • Removing barriers to audience attendance
  • We would all love to perform to bigger audiences – but how can we encourage new attendees? In this session we’ll explore some of the barriers to attendance and how you can overcome them, as well as a brief look at branding and image in those all important concert posters.
