About this event

Oracy Cambridge's 2021 conference theme is ‘Changing Minds’.

Hosted online, and open to all, the focus of this year's conference is the power of spoken communication to create new shared knowledge and understanding, and how it shapes individual ideas and beliefs. A range of speakers will offer new perspectives on the use of spoken language in education and in other social settings.

Pre-recorded presentations will be released on 9th July, along with a live launch session, at 5.00 pm.

Discussion panels

Live, chaired panel discussions will be held as one hour twilight sessions, between 5pm and 6pm on 13th, 14th and 15th July. Organised by themes, conference speakers will each attend the panel which relates most closely to their presentation. The composition of the panels will be as follows:Tuesday 13th July Thinking together: Christine Howe, Pete Dudley & Neil Mercer (Chaired by Paul Warwick).Wednesday 14th July Beyond schools: Paul Warwick, Rebecca Earnshaw & Lyn Dawes (Chaired by Alan Howe).Thursday 15th July Changing Minds: Stephen Coleman, Wendy Lee & Aliyah Irabor-York (Chaired by James Mannion).
