Due to take place at Nottingham Contemporary on July 6th 2018, this conference will consist of parallel sessions that will take the form of academic panels as well as workshops under the banner of ‘what counts as activism?’.

Keynote speakers, Vickie Cooper and David Whyte, authors of The Violence of Austerity, will close the conference, and the day will end with a short performance on injustice by Bread & Roses and a screening of Austerity Fight.

Other speakers will be announced shortly.
