Justice and revolution at Greenbelt

By Symon Hill
August 24, 2013

I am already enjoying the Greenbelt festival in Cheltenham, which began yesterday afternoon.

If you are not familiar with, it's a Christian festival with an emphasis on social and political engagement as well as spirituality, worship, music and arts. I go every year and, while I'm aware that Greenbelt is not without its faults, I still love it.

I'm honoured to say that I've been asked to speak this year. If you're here and would like to know the details, they're as follows:

Saturday, 3.30pm, Centaur: Joining a light-hearted Battle of the Visions debate with Jim Wallis and Sara Kewly Hyde. We'll be discussing what our influence would be if we ran the country (an unlikely possibility but I live in I hope!). I'll be arguing for "justice", Jim for "faith" and Sara for "arts".

Sunday, 3.30pm, Jenin: I'll be discussing my new book, Digital Revolutions: Activism in the internet age, and answering questions

Sunday, 5.30pm, G-Books: Signing copies of my books and happily talking about them to anyone who would like to ask more.

See you there!
