BOLDtalks 2018

    They might be unorthodox. Known to sometimes raise an eyebrow. Its theme often questioned. But one thing for certain is that all our featured talks are thought provoking and are set to challenge the status quo. From the story of the Grenfell Tower survivor, to the talk that questions everything we know about the history of the pyramids and their purposes - for the eighth year, BOLDtalks continues to gather a diversity of discussions by some of the world’s most fascinating people. Join our programme this Saturday 24th March at 6pm in The Junction, Al Serkal Avenue, to take part in the featured talks and debates. The event is ticketless, but limited to the first 200 to register.

BOLDtalks is about getting people engaged and talking. It is about carrying us all into new, deeper levels of understanding of diverse topics. We want to challenge you by putting the discussed matters into your own personal context and see what do they mean to you. Are you one of us? Well, we are looking for those who seek thought-provoking experiences; open-minded attitudes that embrace change, and seek more than the status quo. It’s all about finding those who crave knowledge, in the pursuit of positive change.
