Last night’s event was (we reckon) a great success. The room was packed to the brim with a diverse audience and the debate could have gone on for many more hours.
Thanks to all those who came along and participated: from the brilliant speakers who generously gave up their time and more to travel across the country to take part; to the brilliant audience members who posed insightful and challenging questions; to those supporting the event virtually on twitter.
The debate raised many important questions about how we make sense of, respond to, and challenge ‘poverty porn’ in the context of increasingly punitive welfare reform and rising levels of inequality. We’ll be posting reflections on the event (and hopefully news of further action) in the coming weeks.
For now, you can view a Storify story of all the action on twitter from last night’s event here
And below are are some (blurry) pictures pinched from Twitter (better ones to come!)
Thanks once again!
