FIRST TUESDAY News Review on 6 May
The First Tuesday discussions on current affairs aim to provide participants with a way of developing and testing our understanding of a range of current affairs topics; improving our journalistic capabilities so that we can write opinion or comment style articles for the regional or national media or blogs, respond with a thoughtful angle on radio chat shows, TV talk shows or maybe just have an interesting angle to respond with when discussing the news at work.
The topics selected for discussion this month are:
Venue and Time
The Shakespeare Pub, 16 Fountain Street, Manchester, M2 2AA at 6:30pm for a 6:45pm start. There is a charge of £2.50 per person to cover costs incurred, which can be paid in advance by using the Eventbrite booking mechanism (see http://first-tuesday-may-2014.eventbrite.co.uk), PayPal Donate button on the left hand side of Manchester Salon website (feel free to donate on top of the £2.50 ticket), and can also be paid for on the night if booked in advance by Emailingevents@manchestersalon.org.uk.
When & Where
Manchester Salon is a discussion forum inspired by the Institute of Ideas, aiming to better understand contemporary trends in society.
The aim is to try and capture the essence and nuances of the topics raised in current affairs, and discuss possible solutions. With as many views as there are participants, our conversations never end and are carried on more informally in the bar after the debate. Discussions are open to all.
