Closing Event: Live Comedy Show: Bono and Geldof are C**ts
Multi-award-winning author and comedienne Jane Bussmann takes an acerbic look at how celebrities manipulate the media in order to control global conversations. How celebrities, fuelled by charities, steal the voices of the most vulnerable and present messages that instead of alleviating the problems they campaign for, in fact precipitate them. Bussmann deconstructs and lays bare how 30 years of the most sophisticated charity media campaigns has created “The Poverty Industry”.
