TO TAKE PART OR BOOK TICKETS IN TRUTH TO POWER CAFE AT WELCOME TO THE VILLAGE FOR IEPEN UP AND LEEUWARDEN-FRIESLAND EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE
In 2018 Truth to Power Café continues its exploration into the power of free speech, and political activism as up to 20 Welcome to the Village participants of all ages, beliefs, and backgrounds have up to five minutes to respond to the question: ‘Who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?' before a live audience.
Speaking truth to power has its origins in the anti-war movement but in this era of post-truth, alternative fact and fake-news is widely accepted to mean saying something to those in authority or position of trust who don’t want to hear.
Is it to your parents, a sibling, a politician, lover, landlord, neighbour, sports trainer, carer, religious leader, boss, banker or simply your best friend?
It’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.
