Leeds International Festival – Generation Future

The full main programme for this year’s International Festival is launched this evening, announcing the talks, workshops, networking events and parties falling under the theme Generation Future.

It should be no surprise that in terms of our future, climate is an imperative, and there’ll be big conversations around this, as well as identity and city living.  It’s not all serious stuff, of course, as International Festival goers already know – there’ll be premieres, exclusives, newly commissioned art and of course some fun to be had, all courtesy of LeedsBID who are supported by Welcome to Leeds, The Tetley, Vastint, Leeds City Region and others.  

George Clarke will host an expert panel on ‘Living in a Future City’.  

Michaela Strachan and Roger Hallam will be two of the speakers for ‘A Generation to Cool The Earth’.  

Dr Shona Hunter will be in conversation with others on ‘Future. Identity. Power. Reframing Equality and Justice’.  

Tickets will be on sale on 14 February at 0900.
