This Funzing Experience:

What if these radicals are right? Go through an exploration of the individuals, groups and movements rejecting the way we live now

Get inside the worlds of the disruptors, idealists and extremists, sketching out how politics is likely to evolve in the next 20 years.

From the US Transhumanist Party questing for eternal life, to far-right groups seeking to close the borders, to militant environmentalists striving to save the planet's natural reserves by any means possible. From libertarian movements founding new countries, autonomous cooperatives in self-sustaining micro-societies, and psychedelic pioneers attempting to heal society with the help of powerful hallucinogens.

Jamie Bartlett is the acclaimed author of 'Radicals' - and Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at the think-tank Demos, where he has become one of the UK's leading thinkers on politics and technology. He is also the author of the best-selling The Dark Net (2014) about internet subcultures, which has been translated into 13 languages. He writes regularly for several national media outlets, and recently presented the major BBC2 documentary series 'The Secrets of Silicon Valley'.

Venue: O'Neills Bar, Chinatown

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.

Funzing Talks is a new concept which aims to re-invent your after work drinks. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire your evenings.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a Funzing Talks event makes the perfect after work activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
