Anne Peaker Debate 2018
Cottesloe Room, National Theatre, London
Friday 5th October, 6 – 9pm
In what ways does art contribute to violence in society?
In what ways does it prevent it?
Does art in the criminal justice system contribute to creating a less violent society, or can it do it harm?
This year, as part of The Monument Trust Fellowship, our annual Anne Peaker event will focus on art and violence. The event will be chaired by Alison Frater with a panel debate from a variety of contributors including academics and artists. Speakers include:

The event will run from 6pm – 8pm with networking drinks until 9pm. Spaces are limited so please book in advance.
