mac and Beatfreeks presents The Social Exchange 2017.

Social Exchange is a one-day festival of youth culture and social action. Come to experience unique performances, master classes, debates, and art. Social Exchange brings you all the opportunities you need to access the knowledge and networks which will help you get inspired, confident, and ready to take action.

It’s hard to recognise the world these days, and even harder to predict where it might go. People are trying to build a better future while others live through unimaginable difficulties. The Social Exchange 2017: Utopia/Dystopia shines a spotlight on the present and the near future, and asks - what can we do?  

Tickets are free but booking is essential.
