talks & debates

Southbank Centre's Talks & Debates events feature artists and thinkers – from Grayson Perry to Stephen Hawking and Angela Davis – discussing everything from their seminal works to the pressing issues of the day. These wide-ranging events address topics including literature, global culture and ethnicity, gender politics and equality, love and sexuality and more. Shocking, revealing, and exploratory yet stimulating, our Talks & Debates events set brilliant minds free on big issues.
