The Edinburgh People's Festival is an arts charity dedicated to encouraging working class interest in culture and the arts. Founded in 1951 on 'Gramscian' principles it was re-established in 2002 by Colin Fox after the death of Hamish Henderson.
To mark the 80th anniversary of the death of the famous Italian thinker and activist Antonio Gramsci [1891-1937] the Edinburgh People's Festival will host a panel discussion on his legacy today. The event will feature four Gramscian experts and an audience Q&A session. It will take place on Saturday 29th April in the Grassmarket Centre, Candlmaker Row, Edinburgh 10am-2pm with lunch provided.
This event is sponsored by the Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust and the city's trade union movement.
