A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Founded in 2010: 'Since then dozens of distinguished speakers have come to Salons in Derby to engage in debates and talk about their work and often to put forward some very controversial ideas. Like other Salons in the UK and internationally, we defend the freedom to think, to act, to say what needs saying – even if it offends others ... The East Midlands Salon, like those that currently exist in Brighton, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, Scotland, Dublin and Zurich, is inspired by the Academy of Ideas (AoI) and its flagship event the Battle of Ideas Festival.'
