Dragon Hall Debate: Rubbish

National Centre for Writing, Dragon Hall, Norwich

Free, booking essential

Suitable for ages 16+

Control. Alt. Delete? We know that our planet faces serious waste issues, but what if we redefined rubbish? Dr Lorna Richardson (UEA) will explore the value of preserving our digital heritage, poet Dr John Wedgwood Clarke will take us down to the poetic landfill, Alun Housago (Norfolk County Council) will argue that solutions lie in behaviour change and Rowan Van Tromp (Norwich Food Hub) will challenge us to think about how our economy can work for us – one tin of beans at a time

Dragon Hall Debates tackle a range of topical scientific, cultural and political issues, drawing on the expertise of UEA academics as well as guest thinkers, writers and commentators

Curated by UEA and the National Centre for Writing
