“The Battle of Ideas should be the key event in the calender for anyone serious about being taken seriously. Its a great forum for testing ideas, defending ideas and questioning ideas. But most importantly, it’s a place that celebrates ideas. We are honoured to be involved.”
Austin Williams, founder, ManTowNHuman (Manifesto: Towards a New Humanism), the first radical architectural manifesto for a generation
"The audience were the stars of the Battle of Ideas - engaged, informed and enthusiastic. As a panellist, I felt both ashamed and educated. Exactly as it should be."
John Street, professor of politics, University of East Anglia
