Event Details

Join us for an evening with Paul Mason, award-winning author, broadcaster and film-maker.

How do we preserve what makes us human in an age of uncertainty? Are we now just consumers shaped by market forces? A sequence of DNA?

In a new book, Clear Bright Future, Mason observes that information technology and algorithms allow governments and corporations to make more predictions about our behaviour. But he argues that we are still capable - through language, innovation and co-operation - of shaping our future. He offers a vision of humans as more than puppets, customers or cogs in a machine.

He will be in conversation with Guardian columnist Zoe Williams.

Tickets for this event are £20, or £35 including a copy of Clear Bright Future (RRP £20).

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.

Wheelchair users and visitors who require an assistant may bring a companion free of charge. To book a free companion ticket please email
