I organise political cabaret events in Scotland under the name ‘Realpolitik’ as well as other politically-tinged social events. In 2011, I ran Unholyrood, a night of comedy, mayhem and political banter on the eve of the Holyrood elections featuring Vladimir McTavish, Keir McAlistair, the Sensational Alex Salmond Gastric Bnad and many others. There’s a great preview of the night from Jay Richardson at the Scotsman
Watch this space (or @ Unholyood on Twitter) for details about upcoming events.
In 2011, I also launched the first – totally unofficial – TED fringe, FED. A homegrown alternative to the increasingly corporate TED model that took place at Inspace, University of Edinburgh on July 9 and featured talks, discussions, videos and, most importantly, ideas for a sustainable future for both humans and the planet. Plans for #FED12 are already afoot. More details later in 2012.
One thought on “Events”
We are all over midlothian. It is too short notice to meet. Best if we can do is email/talk.
