The Information is a space for discussion, examination, debate and understanding on today's current affairs and cultural issues, plus challenging the role of music festivals. Making an appearance at both Glastonbury and FORWARDS in 2023, we are now looking at taking The Information further afield in 2024.
Remarkable guests speaking on The Information at FORWARDS in 2023 included Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller in conversation with bootleg- artist/activist Sports Banger, BBC broadcaster, historian and BAFTA award winner David Olusoga with journalist and activist Vicky Spratt, and British Vogue’s contributing editor, author, LGBTIQA+ activist Munroe Bergdorf with author and founder of Gal-dem, Liv Little.
The panels tent has hosted discussions on the likes of diversity in literature, intersectional environmentalism, sober curiosity, non-monogamy, food ethics and much more.
As part of The Information at FORWARDS Bristol we aim to present the audio from previous years to give audiences a place to listen to discussions and topics which have been part of the programme each year. We are thrilled to present a selection of recordings from the 2022 Information Panels.
