On Thursday 13th March, Better Together Leader Alistair Darling will appear in conversation with the BBC's James Naughtie. This is the second event in a two-part conversation series on independence. First Minister Alex Salmond was questioned at the first event on Thursday 16th January. There will be the opportunity for members of the audience to question the speakers.
Both events are being held at The Mitchell Theatre in Glasgow and are being organised by Glasgow-based charity INSP (International Network of Street Papers) in partnership with The Herald as part of the Fraser of Allander lecture series.
All proceeds from ticket sales will go towards INSP’s work alleviating poverty and supporting independent media in Scotland and around the world.

When & Where
INSP supports and develops 110 street papers in 35 countries, like the UK's The Big Issue.
Street papers are independent newspapers and magazines operating on a social enterprise and self-help model to reduce homelessness and unemployment. Street paper vendors buy copies of their local street paper and become micro entrepreneurs, selling their product on the streets. Street papers also provide vendors with access to social support and training.
Since INSP was established in 1994, almost 300,000 vendors around the world have changed their lives through selling street papers. INSP street papers are also an important independent media resource, with a combined global readership of over 5.8 million (per edition).
All profits from INSP events go towards supporting street papers.
