    As stated by Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman:

    “The Disrupted Festival of Ideas is a great free event to get you thinking and talking.

    “I love this Disrupted Festival. It’s a festival for the times! The themes and panel discussions will probe and stimulate thought, and debate important considerations during these disrupted times.”
