WEALTH = FREEDOM? | 3PM – 5PM

An evening of films exploring what being free means followed by the panel discussion: “Does Wealth Trap You or Free You?”

Much was written earlier this year about David Cameron being trapped by his wealth when information about his offshore accounts was leaked. Is it possible that too much wealth is a bad thing? Some would say seeking wealth is a trap. How does having or not having financial resources affect you?

FREEDOM IN FILM | 7PM – 11PM

An evening of films exploring what being free means followed by the panel discussion: “My Body, My Life? Is Sex Work a Human Right?”

Many people use their bodies as a matter of course when getting their work done. Athletes, footballers, labourers, chefs, police officers, the list goes on and on. Yet when it comes to sex work, many societies place restriction on a person’s ability to use their body to do their chosen work. Is this fair?
