The inaugural RSA Fellows Festival on 14 May is an opportunity to begin creating new thinking, new practice and new policies. It is about shaping the future strategy of the RSA - and charting a path towards a better tomorrow. That is why we are calling the event “In pursuit of the good society”.
The Festival will bring together prominent speakers from the world of academia, business, civil society, central and local government, and politics - alongside our Fellows and friends.
Throughout the day you will have the chance to hear first-hand from Fellows, policymakers, practitioners and creatives about their work, achievements and ideas. There will also be space to make your voice heard through Q&As, inspiration sessions, and workshops.
Join us as we examine how we live, learn and work – and what change is needed in pursuit of the good society. Our festival aims to connect you with the very latest thinking from the world’s most ambitious thought-leaders and practitioners.
Fellows Festival agenda
Grab your copy of the agenda for the first Fellows Festival and see what's in store for you on the day.
We want the event to be welcoming to all. It will be a relaxed event and you can come and go from the sessions. We will be providing British Sign Language for all the speakers in the Great Room. There will be a prayer room available to use on the day, and access to designated quiet space for any attendees who may feel they need it during the festival.
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]
