RSA Salisbury Café – conversations and deliberative debate

Fellowship Event



  • Deliberative democracy

Please join us for the first online RSA Salisbury Café event on Tuesday 2 March.

The Café is intended to be an exchange of ideas modelled on the Socrates Cafés running worldwide, and on the Democracy Café in Salisbury, facilitated by Dickie Bellinger FRSA and Mark Potts.

We hope, in running this joint RSA Salisbury and RSA South West region event, to evolve and support locally the national campaign being run by the RSA to promote deliberative democracy.

The RSA Café will have no preset agenda and the two topics for discussion will be determined by participants at the start of the meeting. If you have a local or national issue you would like to see discussed, please offer it for consideration. The aim is to engage in impassioned yet thoughtful exchanges of ideas and ideals. We welcome people with a diversity of views. If you like your coffee with a sprinkling of ideas on the side and good company, this event may be for you.

The meeting is open to non-Fellows and Fellows. We welcome all who support the work of the RSA and who are interested in finding out more about deliberative democracy. There is a maximum registration of 30 people for this event so please register early to avoid disappointment. If you book and are unable to attend, please let us know ASAP so places can be released to those on the waiting list.
