Who’s in charge here?

Join us and our guest speaker Dan Hind at York Medical Society on Stonegate to discuss the interplay between media and politics, the power dynamics of the UK in 2022, and what – if anything – needs to change.

Dan Hind is an author with a longstanding interest in the question of media reform. His books include The Return of the Public: Democracy, Power and the Case for Media Reform and The Magic Kingdom: Property, Monarchy and the Maximum Republic. He is currently a postgraduate researcher at the University of York.

Taking part in RSA in-person events  

We've been looking forward to finally being able to meet together in person. But of course recognise it is important for us to stay cautious and make the environment safe for everyone.   

We aim to have assurances from all venues that they will have basic COVID-safety processes in place. 

We’re asking all attendees of events to be respectful of personal space, to be mindful of others preferences in regards to social distancing and to respect those that are wearing face coverings. 

To participate in the event, you will need to register for a ticket so we can make sure we have an up-to-date list of those who plan on attending. This is for capacity purposes.   

We request that all attendees evaluate their own health and that of those they’re in close contact with. We encourage all attendees that are sick or showing symptoms of illness to stay home and to cancel your Eventbrite ticket if you are no longer able to join the event.   

Given the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, please always check your latest national Government guidance in addition to following our baseline guidance enclosed here. If guidelines do change, the event may be cancelled at short notice. 

If you have any questions, or to let us know of any access requirements or reasonable adjustments you require, please email: [email protected]
