Sat 3rd Apr, 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Who do we trust, why should we trust, should we trust ourselves to question voices of authority or the latest influencer? Trust in science has always been a hotly debated subject, but since the outbreak of a global pandemic it has become a topic that affects us all, information and misinformation dominate debates across our media. We want to hear your thoughts on trust, science and how it affects your lives.
Welcome to Talkaoke – a pop up talk show where anyone can sit down and air their views around the table of chat. The People Speak have been running Talkaoke events from street corners to theatres, galleries, conferences, festivals all around the world, and now they are venturing online! The Talkaoke conversation is a journey from one unexpected subject to another. It can be topical, funny, deep, out-there, or all of the above. It is a great chance to hear the latest ideas that people are talking about and to generate and discover new ones.
Join us for a fun filled, often surprising, conversational adventure!
Talkaoke is an emergent, non-predetermined conversation so we don’t know where it will lead, or what new connections might be made. In this series for the Cambridge festival we hope to touch upon the nature of creativity and direction in science and other fields of research in the first session and explore the intersection between communicating uncertainty and trust in the second session.
Saturday 27th March, 4:30-6pm
