What does it mean to be free? The event gives you the opportunity to discuss and explore freedom with cutting edge thinkers of our time: philosophers, designers, artists and scientists.

«It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.” Is Voltaire right that freedom is not straightforward? Are we unfree in ways we don’t even realise? Is being free perhaps not always desirable? Are we willing to accept the responsibilities that come with freedom?

Come and discuss what it means to be free today in this cultural salon. In the first part of the event, leading thinkers and designers lead conversations that explore the political, economic, cultural and philosophical trappings of freedom. The salon will then debate the value of freedom and design’s place in creating a better world.

This event is curated by Philosophy For All to compliment the Design Museum’s exhibition: California: Designing Freedom.

Adult £10, student/ concession £7.50, Members £9
