A new age of anxiety? - Dragon Hall Debates at The Forum

Monday 26th February 2018 - 19:30

With an epidemic amongst young people in depression and anxiety, and policy-makers now looking at ways of addressing public wellbeing, we ask if we are living in a new age of anxiety. Political economist Will Davies of Goldsmiths, University of London will discuss what he calls ‘the happiness industry’, while UEA’s Teresa Belton will talk about the reciprocal relationship between personal wellbeing and environmental sustainability.

These free events, held in partnership with Writers’ Centre Norwich, are open to everyone, and no prior knowledge is needed. The speakers will talk briefly and then the audience are invited to ask questions and offer opinions as the discussion opens up.

This year's series will be relocating temporarily to the Millennium Library at The Forum, while Dragon Hall undergoes renovation to open as the National Centre for Writing in summer 2018.
