The Emperor’s new clothes: voices from the margins

4th July @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Within all elements of society there are voices that are prioritised because of their size. With a focus on the loudest and the largest it is possible to miss the voices from the margins with their myriad of new ideas and ways of thinking. Although this extends to all areas of society, in this talk James Holt, author of Beyond the Big Six Religions, will explore the value of including the voices of those ‘on the margins’ of religion and belief in our public discourse and legislation. It has been suggested that as those with little power are ignored, there is less appetite for people to become involved or even to raise their voices. Using examples from his career in Religious Education and inter-faith, James will highlight the strength that this inclusive civil discourse can bring to our personal, professional and societal relationships.
