Shami Chakrabarti’s in Newcastle last May – did you miss it? Back again on 26/1/12!

These might be crazy times when the calm, informed and rigorous perspective of Shami is especially important. In May she visited Newcastle and gave a public lecture at the “other” University; her talk can be found at: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/events/public-lectures/item.php?common-values-common-politics-human-rights-in-a-new-era-of-british-government Hearing to the recording is, perhaps, not as uplifting as being present (as I was) but still worth your attention. Listen, ponder and reflect about this little corner of the world; a world you are growing into and, as designers, will seek to change and shape! Mic
PS Shami is talking at Northumbria on the 26/01/12 – booking details from: http://www.northumbria.ac.uk/browse/ne/uninews/publiclecture
