RSA Keynote


Acclaimed poet, Booker-winning novelist and essayist Ben Okri visits the RSA to discuss his perspective on the current climate and the ‘state we’re in’ - from economic woes to environmental issues – and will propose a new idea for our times.

Ben will also read from a short story which talks about a collective decision to transform ourselves, and the way we address problems in the world.

Chair: Claire Armitstead, the Guardian's literary editor.
