Shoreham Wordfest: Operation Chaos – A Debate On Fake News & Active Citizenship
Wednesday 11th October 2017 -
Led by political columnist Rafael Behr, and with an introductory romp through the history of misinformation by David Bramwell and John Higgs.
Rafael will use his experience as political correspondent for The Guardian and commentator on BBC Radio 4, to guide us through a positive debate on how to become more active in our understanding of what is going on around us.
Setting the scene, authors David Bramwell and John Higgs will take us on a rollercoaster ride through the outer edges of 60s counterculture and how an experiment to launch chaos, culture jamming and trickery into the world got seriously out of control, inspiring today’s scourge of fake news.
