Attend the International Festival of Whistleblowing, Dissent and Accountability this weekend (May 8)

Something exciting is happening this weekend. The International Festival of Whistleblowing, Dissent and Accountability!

Prepare yourself for this Saturday, the 8th of May. You will experience an enlightening journey into the heart of some of the world’s most grave injustices. Through, art, music, film & theatre as well as practical workshops, panels, interviews and mini-lectures we pause to reflect on how we find out about these injustices, what price was paid for the truth and by whom, how these grave circumstances are understood, spun and reported, and what can be done to facilitate justice.

Full schedule in pdf format:

The lobby will be open and accessible at anytime from 8th May at 7:45 AM BST, 8:45 AM CET.
