We’re also very excited to host journalist, contributing editor of the New Statesman and editor-at-large of The New Inquiry Laurie Penny, who will join NUW’s Tim Kennedy and playwright and Guardian columnist Van Badham in conversation with Overland editor Jacinda Woodhead to imagine the possibilities for a changed society.

When: Sunday 30 August, 6pm
Where: Bella Union, Trades Hall
