Billy Bragg in Conversation: The Three Dimensions of Freedom
— EVENT POSTPONED —
We still aim to have Billy Bragg visit, but with an indefinite delay. Possibly May, check in with us closer to the date!
Billy Bragg the English singer-songwriter and left-wing activist is coming to Fremantle and New Edition is excited to host an evening where Bragg talks about the importance of three dimensional freedom. At a time when opinion trumps facts and truth is treated as nothing more than another perspective, free speech has become a battleground. While authoritarians and algorithms threaten democracy, we argue over who has the right to speak. To protect ourselves from encroaching tyranny, we must look beyond this one-dimensional notion of what it means to be free and, by reconnecting liberty to equality and accountability, restore the individual agency engendered by the three dimensions of freedom.
Note: this is not a gig, Billy won’t be playing. Ticket price of $20 includes copy of the book.
