FSU Arts Forum: Standing Up for Freedom of Expression Across the Arts

September 8, 2022 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm UTC+0

Following the success of two initial FSU Arts Forums, one in London and the other in Glasgow, we invite artists, performers, writers, curators, architects, designers and others involved in the arts, to join a panel-led discussion on Standing Up for Freedom of Expression Across the Arts.

We are all familiar with stories of artists having their reputations and careers threatened as punishment for the expression of views which challenge certain new orthodoxies. There are also more subtle limitations on the artistic imagination from, for example, demands that artists prioritise non-artistic factors when creating their work. The FSU Arts Forums have been formed to develop an effective defence of freedom of expression, capable of standing up to its latest challenges.

The Free Speech Union is a non-partisan, mass-membership public interest body that stands up for the speech rights of its members. You can find out more about us here.

The discussion will be conducted according to the Chatham House rule. If there are others you would recommend we invite, please let us know.
