The RSA Fellows Festival, in its inaugral year, is now less than two weeks away. As the event gets ever nearer, we're pleased to announce the full lineup of speakers that will be joining us with new thinking, practices, and policies.

We know we have an economy that is unbalanced and extractive, as well as being vulnerable to shocks like Covid-19 and the crisis in Ukraine. When we come together at the RSA’s historic home in central London on 14 May, we will be working together to unlock ideas, address these challenges and pursue the good society.

Working with us to create a better tomorrow, will be our previously unannounced speakers:

  • Jon Alexander: Co-Founder, New Citizenship Project and Author of CITIZENS: Why the Key to Fixing Everything is All of Us.
  • Inua Ellams: An internationally touring poet, playwright, performer, graphic artist and designer.
  • Quentin Hart: The first black Mayor in Iowa, elected on a platform of promoting diversity and fighting inequality.
  • Imandeep Kaur: Co-founder and Director at Civic Square
  • Noga Levy Rapoport: A climate activist, speaker, and volunteer within English climate strikes at the UK Student Climate Network.

Explore the full line up of guests below:

Jon Alexander / Damian Allen / Kate Bell / Karan Bilimoria / Tony Danker / Inua Ellams / Liv Garfield / Quentin Hart / Margaret Heffernan / Lewis Iwu / Imandeep Kaur / Ed Miliband MP / Noga Levy Rapoport / Minouche Shafik / David Tait / Gillian Tett / UK Government Secretary of State / ... and more.

Plus, you'll also hear from Fellows, including those who have taken part in Catalyst Awards and Student Design Awards.
